Re: Help wiring carling switches
Ok, even though the switch info says # 1&3 "out to accessory", you actually need to wire it a bit differently.
Remember, basically you are wanting your fog lights to be supplied from 2 different sources: either directly from the battery (i.e., on all the time), OR from your headlight circuit (i.e. on with the headlights). The fog lights are the common thing, the two power sources are what you are selecting between.
The function of the swith is like this: the COMMON terminal on the switch (#2) is either connected to #1 or #3, depending on the position of the rocker (or neither, if the rocker is in the middle).
Does this make sense so far?
Okay, so try this:
On your switch...
1. Connect the #2 terminal to your fog lights (or the fog light relay).
2. Connect #1 terminal to the +12 v hot (or switched...whichever you are using for the "always on" source).
3. Connect the #3 terminal to you H/L power source (hot when low-beams are on).
Sounds like the other terminals are already connected correctly for the LED's to function. Do they come on when the dash lights are on?
I had a similar arrangement on my old Ford truck's B/U lights. I had two aux lights in the rear which were wired through an accesory switch the same way: UP=on, Middle=off, Down= on when in reverse (stock B/U lights ON). Only difference was, it was a basic toggle switch, not a fancy illuminated rocker...
Give it a try, let me know what happens...
