RJ wins for the best description of how to reset that lever that I have ever read.

Thank you, Brian!  I appreciate the kind words.

My bus won't shut down if the headlights are on.  If I take the keys out, it just keeps running until I flip the headlight switch to off.  Anyone heard of this before?

Anything is possible after a good rewiring job, sort of like "Would you beleive this or not?" by some good meaning person who got lost in the bundle.

Ya gotta love creative wiring despite how lost the guy is that is trying.  We refer to them as "one wire", one wire at a time confounds them totally.  As in clueless.

Michael,

My 4104 taillights were once so messed up that when I hit the brakes the engine would die!

I finally narrowed it down to find that I had a couple of TL ground wires reversed.
