If properly designed the CB will work as well as the fuse. The big
misconception is that they are many times used without proper design.
CB's need to be properly designed and selected using their trip curve
characteristics. Fuses in themselves also have similar but different
characteristics like fast acting, slow blow as well as interrupt and
surge current ratings. Make sure that the CB is designed specifically for automotive circuits.
Circuit breakers are fine for lights, relays, </span>
etc. but they are way too slow for electronic devices.
If the circuit continues to trip you should
resolve the problem. If anything, go with the manual reset breakers.
Automatic reset CB's can fatigue circuits, degrade over time and are typically
intended for specific circuit applications.
