Hi,

Safety first, i'm not talking about turning off the brake light. I want to turn the interior cluster and radio display on and off, because they are not dimmable when you use the spring loaded knob to turn the automatic lights off. All the exterior lights - sans brake light - turn off with that knob, but the display goes to max brightness.

Would it be safe to use an inline fuse holder, for those 2 fuses to the interior fuse box, with a toggle switch with a 30 amp rating, to turn them on / off? I don't know if the toggle switch would protect against any surges that could fry the cluster/radio display, by turning it on/off with the vehicle running. The parts weren't made to be turned on and off with the vehicle running, so this is probably a dumb idea.

Can't use the dimmer if you switch the lights off, only if auto light control is on.
