EPS FUSE (Electrical power steering)

I was wondering if my car were on of those that came out wrong from fabric about the power steering, but I discover that my EPS fuse (2 Amp) was fried. I went out immediately to get one new but just found of 3 Amps. So my question is, would it work this Fuse of 3 Amp...Please help me out.

Well if it was a 2 amp fuse you want to replace it with another 2 amp since it was being used for a reason. Using a larger fuse is risky because it will allow more current to flow then the circuit is designed for which can = melted wires or fire.

Get your recall notice for the power steering yet? what year is yours because the EPS was recalled for my 07 as was the fuel module both were done under warranty tho before I got recall notices

I just bought this car, actually imported from copart.com and I don't know if the last owner took it to his dealer for those 2 recalls. :/ I have to check with my local mechanic shop and if how to fix it.... ..I'm worry because I'm not driving...power steering is full mechanic: I can't park not even turn keeping my lane.

Thanks for explaining me. Any other information I would really appreciate.
