Yeah, that's what it is a lighted rocker switch. Thanks again!

Keep in mind that you are switching 36v.

The commonly stocked Carling type rocker switches do not have independent lighting, meaning the internal LED is powered by the load voltage.

If You get one of those, you will need a 1.2kΩ x 1watt resistor in the negative wire going to the switch so the 12v LED does not burn.

Thanks Sergio. I'm afraid I overlooked that fact when I first installed the switch a couple of years ago, the LED has been burned out for awhile!

Default Re: Relay for voltage reducer not working

Hello,
I'm a newbie and have a question about the relay wiring. I'm a little confused. The relay should get:
- switched voltage from the Key switch
- constant input voltage from the +36 fused line (battery pack)
- once activated it will divert (output) +36 to the voltage reducer (input)

What I'm not understanding is the "36V Positive Existing" in the picture above. Should that be (-36V from Battery Pack)? Not sure where the +36V positive is coming from unless I pull before the switch. Isn't that the same as +36 fused (Battery Pack)?

Please help.

Mike

Sergio is your man. I think it has something to do with my particular application, ignition is negative switched.
