    Hi i recently purchased an american spec T150v  1972 ( 4 position ignition switch in side panel) and am trying to sort the electrics   the problem ? I have is when the parking lights are on so are the speedo and rev counter lights and can also turn head light  on at same time ( via switch on head light ). The wiring seems to match the wiring diagram so would like to know if i have a problem with the wiring or is this the way the parking lights work . Sorry if its seems a bit of a daft question

    regards Mark

    hi, Mark my T160 is the same they are supposed to be like that its the way they were,they always had their pilot lights on,the way around it is either fit led,s so it does not take too much out of the battery or change the ignition switch which has 2 terminals off the lighting position,or you might be able to fit one of those piggy back terminals on your switch if you have the space.

    cheers Keith

      Hi Keith
      Thank you for your reply will probably end up leaving it as is as will be very unlikely to ever use parking facility anyway but just wanted to be sure I wasn’t wasting my time looking for a fault that didn’t exist regards Mark
