Open the fuse compartment and check. 

 

Realistically, a fuse is a fuse..... you obviously need to ensure you are replacing the fuse with a new one of the correct (same) amperage.

 

If you can’t find any at an electrical store / mechanics etc..  you will be able to find some and order from Lazada.

I have seen the flat fuse type come in two sizes, but most rides use the same size type fuse.

Mr.DIY may be worth a look for a box of spares.

There are at least half a dozen different car fuse styles, and each style comes in a variety of current ratings.

If its a modern BMW or MB it will use ATC/ATO blade fuses (20mm long) and/or ATM (11mm long).  The vehicle will have more than one fuse box and also 'fusible links' on high current circuits - buy replacements for those from the dealer.

Older 'classic' vehicles will likely use Bosch 'torpedo' fuses (25mm ceramic body).

Buy a box of mixed values from Lazada - not expensive. Always replace with same current value (they are colour coded).

I remember a friend of mine in the UK who repaired washing machines etc and made a good living from it  once asking me if the 5 Amp fuse for cars was the same as 5 Amps for household electricals.

At the Nakhula traffic light (Po Ngam rd/soi 14/1) on Sukumvit on the right hand side going out of town is an auto-parts store. Brightly coloured frontage with pictures of trucks etc. 

It is almost directly under the "southbound "light adjacent to the crosswalk.Turn left and park in the small side street.
