E90 Battery change from Lead Acid to AGM, induces door actuator fuse blown?

1 year ago, collision center mistakenly changed the battery from LeadAcid (default one equipped before I believe) to AGM for my E90.
I just realized that when I checked up in body shop yesterday, and they recommend me to update the system. Surely I will do.
But this recalls me the something that happened. One day later after changing the battery from LeadAcid to AGM, there was door acuator fuse blown. Collision center told me at that time, it does not relate with new battery, just aging made that happened.
How do you think? I am thinking it is related. I need logical explanation about it.

door actuator fuse needs to be changed to 20amps instead of 15.

That is never advised.

OP, the only thing that needs to be done when using AGM is to program the car so it knows the battery is AGM. Replace the fuse, see if this is an on-going issue or just a one-time thing.

I believe there's a service bulletin that says to install a larger amp fuse. It's normally not a good idea, but BMW knows best.

Also, get the car recoded so it knows there's an AGM installed.
