No need to tap into the fuse box for this.  The idea is to run a small wire off the glow plug bus bar to the LED.  I suppose you
could tap into the heavy wire leaving the GP relay, but the main benefit of the GP indicator is that you are getting power to
the glow plugs.  You could add a fuse at the bus bar connection.
