Pulling the parking light fuse.
Written by bike2vcu on 3/20/2012 at 12:00 am

Well, I finally got tired of worrying about leaving the damn ignition lock in
the wrong position (P) and running down the battery because of the taillights.
It has happened once at work and twice at home and I even went so far as to
paint a stripe on the ignition switch so I would be less likely to do it again.

Rather than continue to obsess I decided to just pull the fuse, as has been
suggested before in this forum. With the left side panel off it took less than
a minute to pry the cap off the little white fusebox and remove the 10A
(careful, it's one of several) fuse. Tested without it and everything else
works so I must not have screwed anything up. One less thing to worry about.

    You are very much right. I gave off a great part of the warnings. Not left to mention that my key could be extracted in the wrong position without the light being on. I tried it out so I know that checking at the rearif the light is burning d

        I was warned about the parking light position on my 89 when I got it. Never had a problem. Looks like they didn't carry that feature over to the 90 that I just bought. By the way, I used the backside of the main hot line in the fuse holder as

    Well, this paid off sooner than I thought, even though I was still being careful to lock the ignition in the correct position. I came out this morning and saw that it was at P and for just a second thought, "Aw, crap, I'll have to drive
