Getting old and a little humor.

This morning I rolled the Honda ES6500 out for exercise.
Hooked the NG cable up and proceeded to start the little jewel.
I wanted to check the frequency meter to see if it was slightly over 60 hertz.
Yep, it was at 60.5.
I walked around the Honda and brushed the webs off of it.
I decided to let it run until it got warm.
Not too long and warm air was coming out near the radiator.
So, I turn the valve on the NG off and decided to roll it back in to its resting space.
Doing so I noticed the oil light was on.
I fretted over the lamp being lit.
Wondering how it could be on and the engine not running.
I step back and take a good look at the panel.
Awww! I had left the start switch on.
Just getting old I guess. 馃槖

good catch!
i install led's for the power or key on indicator
that make those dandy 12 volt dc 1 inch led's for marker lights trailers that work well and only need a 3/4 hole to mount
and they are bright.

In the grand scheme of things, I'm sure you're still glad it was a false alarm. :)

Nobody likes to see that dreaded oil alarm indicator light up in the middle of a run... no more than you want to see the Check Engine light in your car while driving on the freeway.

Do you have a part no. or link to the LED lights? I can hardly tell when the pilot, oil, or coolant lights on my ES6500 are on, especially on a bright sunny day.

see conversations or start one with me for a link.

If this helps, one quick and easy fix is to install a 12v breaker on the positive battery cable. I've done so on many battery equipped OPE over the years including boats, ATV's and my plow truck.
The main reason I install them is prevent battery power seepage.
Pictured is an example, a simple glance tells you, no guess work.

I took off my off pants this morning to get into my work pants.
Found some strange seepage myself...

There is truth in never trust a fart
