    Glovebox light no power

    Okay, so everything was good, just wanted to change a bulb, and I might have accidentally short fused something and there's almost no power in those wires now (~1.6V).
    Fusebox seems okay, with no damaged fuses. What could be the problem?

    It will sound silly, but the issue was that it had a bad battery terminal connection..

    Not silly at all. I had the same issue twice and both times I had to spend a while before checking out the connection
