   I'm sitting here right now tracking down a problem with my motorcycle's 
wiring diagram. Too funny.

  My dad was a kick-ass mechanic but even he wouldn't do electrical trouble 
shooting. Not even on his own car. He would sooner sell it and buy another car 
and I agree. 
  I have neither the aptitude nor the patience to go on a wiring harness 
safari. 
  There is a nice little shop of Mexican guys in Pasadena who can do that in 
their sleep for a case of beer.

   I blew a fuse. # 9  I think. The radio and clock are good now, but the tail 
light is still out. More trouble shooting tomorrow.

Date: Saturday, February 12, 2011, 10:00 AMMy Bentley is for the “Station 
Wagon/Bus” not a Westy but… 
 For a 79, the stop lights are on fuse #12 and the right tail light is on fuse 
#2 (numbered from left to right) There are none listed for the radio or the 
dash lights but that should be easy enough to trace back to the fuse box. 
Personally I don’t believe in coincidences so I’m thinking 
screwdriver+sparks+things stopped working are all connected… 
 Regardless, check your fuses 1st, any corrosion is bad eg the fuse may be good 
but corrosion can sever the connection. If all your fuses are good, check for 
12v and ground with a multi meter at the clock. If you’ve got both the problem 
is internal to your clock L
 I know this may be in bad taste/timing but one should always disconnect the 
negative post on the battery before doing any electrical work. Good luck 
finding and fixing your problem Kelly!!

  I pulled my dash out to upgrade to led's. While doing so, the lead wire on my 
dash clock was a bit tough to pop off, so I used a screwdriver to pry it. While 
doing so, one end of the screwdriver sparked on the clock itself. I put it all 
back together and everything works accept the clock, the radio and the right 
tail/brake light. . 

  Once it gets a little warmer than the recent 30 degree temps I will go out 
and check the fuses. (the light in the clock still works) 
  I am pretty sure I blew a fuse, but my question is this- is there a fuse that 
runs only the clock the radio and the right tail light? That just seems odd. 

  I changed the bulb- no effect. The right rear signal and back-up light still 
work. It's just the middle bulb, for running light and braking. 
  Is it an unrelated coincidence?
