Gannu, slot16 is not empty. You wanted me to tap this fuse? Is there any empty slot I can use which activates with ignition ON?

It isn't empty but you can use the fuse tap and connect both the fuses to the tapping cable. Works.

Just to add, this doesn't alter the primary circuit in any way. We are only tapping an extra 12V and providing an independent fuse to it.

Both would work. You are essentially tapping 12 V from a source. Stick to a 5A fuse.

Noob question, but can I use the door switch from any refrigerator for lighting the glove box? Any cheap way to convert the 250V input?

Edit: I found this link on AliExpress.
Is this ok?
