Well if its poppin 10 amp fuses like no problem it must be bigger amped dont fuses pop when they are on a high current an not the right amp size..................
Not quite, it may well be in this case, but it could be a short, and then putting in a heavier fuse moves the problem away from the fuse to the newest weakest part(as the fuse is no longer the weakest link), this can result in wires melting insulation etc and fires.
I'm sure in this case it is a heavier fuse rating, as seats do consume a lot of current, but as a rule don't just put in a heavier fuse, fuses should always be kept to the minimum rating you can get away with for safety, as these need to be the weakest link.
I have seen a amp set up in the rear of a civic, that used NO fuses from battery to rear, then a fuseholder with 2 X 3/8" solid bar for fuses!!
