My car keeps burning out my 20 watt fuse that powers my back lights. Is there a way to make this stop blowing my fuse everytime i put it in, but also be able to run the amp and everything else.

It seems that you amp is running on the same line as your rear lights? If this the case then you can either install a fuse with a higher rating (cheap and easy solution but not such a good idea, as you could damage you lights if they are overloaded / shorted out) or run a new line directly from your amp to the battery (of course add an inline fuse about 4" from the battery terminal)

|----| cable          |---|
|amp |-----------[-]--|+__|
|----|           fuse

hope it helps.

alright first yea its most likely wired into your lights somewhere which could be a problem. i dont understand why that was done to begin with.  hes right about the inline fuse off the battery. you can go to your local parts store and ask them for one. its about five bucks for a good one.  and no it doesnt come with the fuse. by some 30 amp fuses and some 25s install a 25 in the lights fuse box and put the 30 in the inline fuse. that way when you fry one of them everything will still be powered.  good luck. oh yea dont twist the wires together, crimp them and use electrical tape
