Thanks bud!

I knew the rating of the fuses were 15amps so i bought my taps rated for 20amps so I re-used the 15amp fuse. I assume those taps are rated to an amperage based on the wire size. It would be safer to use a 10amp fuse but it might blow if the load of the gauges plus the doorlocks exceeds 10amps. On the other hand, you run a small risk melting the wires on the tap and starting a fire if you use the 15amp fuse and the circuit exceeds the 10amp rating of the tap.

I would recommend getting new taps rated at 15amps or higher.
