My cigarette lighter plug fuse keep blowing when I plug in my cell phone. Mercedes told me the plug is basically made for the lighter only. Can a bigger amp fuse be used without any damage to the wiring? Thanks

Do not plug in a bigger fuse. Bad things can happen. The wiring is only rated for a certain level of amperage and in the worst case scenario you could start a fire. It is possible your charger has shorted internally and is at fault. While that socket was not designed for a charger, it can be used for that purpose if you've got a good unit in good working order. I'd try another charger before condemning the system.
