Ah, yes that does look like it would work although a glance on my phone looks almost like those are round connectors. Seems like I recall seeing something specifically made to plug into a fuse receptacle. Then again these are the mini? Fuses as well...

Looks like the manufacturer suggests these for mini fuses. Still a bunch of money to pay to "fix" something that shouldn't be broken. {Jonathan}

The second one I posted does that. https://www.amazon.c...h/dp/B009APJ2UU

$55 for a fuse and a switch?  I'd make my own first

I'm tempted to just get one of these for a few bucks and at least make it easier to grab and yank out of there...

Ahh, here we go.  This guy's already done it:

Took me a minute to fully grasp how the pieces work and how it's wired, but yes this should be about $15 worth of parts...

Given that I'm not willing to put something I soldered myself (your other answer) onto my car's fuse box, this looks more promising. So, is this essentially a circuitbreaker which will function as a fuse unless tripped, in which case it is resettable instead of needing to be replaced like a standard fuse? Like circuitbreakers in a home?

Well, you might be able to get away with just crimping instead of soldering...(that fuse blade might be a bit tricky...)

 

I believe this is just a self resetting circuit breaker.  I've had a couple of them in the past that looked a bit different(Well the were the full size fuse size.  just put one in my kids' power wheels).

 

Yeah it would just go in place of the fuse.  If the circuit ever overloaded, it would trip the circuit breaker, and then after some seconds it would reconnect.  So, it's not going to give you a switch, but it has more surface area to grab on to if you needed to pull it to reset SYNC/TCU/etc...

 

 No guarantee it actually fits in there/under the cover, and it's still a pain to reach though...
