Might be a silly question but with ignition on and kill switch off you get no neutral light. Could the kill switch cut power to the glove box too?

Dang it Donk, now your gonna make me go back and plug in that solenoid back in to test your theory. You could be right. What is it they say, try the simplest thing first? Then again, you would think that as much as I use that glove box, that I would have already tested that theory many times over the years but we are creatures of habit, so Iíll try it tomorrow.
Thanks!

Well, tonight I dusted off my Yamaha 04-05 Service Manual and dug in. You were right, pulling the lower left faring (and one inner panel) slightly exposed the Solenoid at the bottom of the glove box. Actually the manual refers to it as an ďAccessory BoxĒ. It also shows an accessory box relay as well.
I removed the connector to the solenoid. I know I should trouble shoot this properly, but Iím still pursuing a quick way to get my wallet, so back to the idea of a 12V jumper. The solenoid is fed by a black wire and an O/W (orange/white) wire and it looks like the black wire is ground. Can I safely run jumpers from my battery tender leads to the solenoid? Positive wire to positive and ground to ground?

All you need to worry about is the positive. The ground is not switched on and off, so the ground wire from the solenoid is always grounded.

Neutral light should not be related to the glove box. More likely ignition switch... gear position switch could be dirty too, can easily remove and clean it up.

Thanks guys!
Regarding a dirty gear switch, last weeks ride did put me on about 40 miles of gravel, so Iíll check that too..

I could never get my '05 box to open. I eventually started using a screwdriver to jimmy it open the few times I wanted inside. That was after I removed the solenoid completely. It opened the same with or without it.

BTW, the horn is on the same circuit. Last year someone posted that you can run dual horns without a relay. So i tried it. I was out riding the next day heading for a Starbucks about 40 miles from home. I was not far from my exit when someone started to move into my lane , so I honked at him. Blew the fuse.

I got to Starbucks and realized I could not get to my phone or wallet in the compartment. At that point I was glad I pack the tools to get to the fuse box. Be sure you have a Phillips screwdriver and Allen wrench that you can get to when you ride.

Sealed, No gravel in there, just oil. Two screws, switch is above shifter, normally just needs a cleaning.

Oddly, the neutral indicator light stopped lighting up at the same time as the glove box failure. Anyway, Iím hoping someone knows of a quick way (short of breaking it) to get that lid open. Iíve read lotís of fixes on how to disable it so that one is no longer required to have the key on, but that seems to require being able to open the lid. I suspect I have a Solenoid/Relay issue, but right now I just need to get that wallet out.
Any quick clever ideas?
Unfortunately Iím leaving town in 30min with no drivers license so no time to fuss with it now, but I will be back in two days.
I donít think my Yamaha Service Manual will help with any quick access work arounds..
Thanks for any ideas!
Took me forever to figure out key on, in neutral, viola opens every time. But as already mentioned, has to see 12v signal
