Default Wiring help? New light switch

The plunger switch that came with my light kit is getting flaky. When I turn my lights on, I have to turn the knob, pull it to the side, etc. to get the lights to stay on, and its progressively getting worse. The switch has two male spade connectors on it. I want to replace it with an led rocker switch where the led is lit when the switch is on. It has three male spade connectors on it - I assume to add ground for the led.

My cart is down at the lake and I am taking the new switch and tools and supplies I need to install it with me this weekend. So I don't have the benefit of looking behind the dash ahead of time. I assume I can find a ground point because my radio power and ground is back there. But just in case, can someone tell me which wire to look for for ground given that my aux battery is wired to the controller, so the wiring behind the dash is just as it would be if wired to one of the pack batteries. I have a meter and am planning to take that with me as well.

Towards the drivers side of the dash there is a black wire with a white stripe (i think). It has a spade connector already attached. Or at least my '07 did.

you are correct on wiring switch
all the ground does is allow the led to light up
first find wire that is 12v+ on current light switch .. (it will have power all the time)
hook it to 12v in on led .. the other wire will be load .. attach it to load on led
take a 12v test light with you and clip to 12v + and find a close ground then tie into it and ground on led... your done

I can drill out the hole if needed but I think this switch says 1/2" on it and it looks the same size as what's already on the cart.
