Default Wiring led light switch

Has anyone wired one of these led switches
Amazon Amazon
?

It has an illuminated lower led when the key is on, then a upper led illuminates once you turn the switch to the on position to power lights.

I have the switch wired to control my exterior lights, but can't seem to get the lower and upper leds on the switch to illuminate at all. Also, I have all 3 switches daisy chained. All control their respected exterior light, but none illuminate their led indicators.

Are they being fed the correct voltage? Looks like the range is from 12 to 24 VDC and may not work at higher voltage.

Generally when an LED does not work the +/- polarity is backwards...

This is the connection diagram for that switch:

From the picture it looks like the daisy chain on the Negative side, is not connected to a negative source.

The negative chain starts right to left from a bus bar. Incoming constant power (w/ key on) starts left to right. Then output to relay is the bottom left of each switch. Scratching my head on this one. Been playing around with them for a couple of days and about ready to give up on the blue led indicators.

12V from the reducer.

Ok well let me ask you this... Have you sat down with just one switch in hand with a 12 volt power source and figured out how to make just the LED light up? Chances are you are too focused on the forest to see the tree...

Smile Re: Wiring led light switch

What Sergio pointed out was the switches a linked together properly but there is not a visible negative connection going to the linked switches from the voltage reducer...at least you can't see one in the posted picture...take a temporary jumper from the negative wire from the reducer and clamp it to any negative and you should see the lights work.

Got it fixed tonight

Faulty relay from the 1st switch in the series. Replaced it with another 40amp one and everything works as it should.

And yes, before anyone says anything, it's on the charger at this very moment

(Sorry about the sideways pic)
