The manual says that the procedure is:
"2) Turn the key to On/Run
3) Sift the transmission to Neutral
4) Turn the key to Accessory
5) Turn off all of the accessories
6) Pull fuse 32."
The manual does NOT say to start the engine which you apparently you do.
Is that correct? If so, your process is probably better.
