Glove box light fuse connects to other things...FYI
While I was waiting for my glove box handle, I disconnected the fuse (52 I think but don't quote me on that) to turn off the glove box light because it was stuck open.

Little did I know, the same fuse is connected to the rest of the interior lights (understandable), trunk release button (both interior and exterior) and the reverse parking sensors. With this fuse out, you won't hear your car beep when you engage reverse (even though your mirror folds down still). You will still hear the pulsing at each sensor if you put your ear up to them though. So the fuse must just control the audible portion of the parking sensors.

I thought the car was falling apart until I plugged that sucker back in.

Just a public announcement to check this fuse if any of these items aren't working in your car. Actually if the fuse was out, none of them would work all at the same time.

Good to know, thanks. And yes it is fuse 52. In addition, the windshield washer.
