I used a LED light bar Rocker switch for my light bar, it had more pins than i needed, i think we used the bottom 2 for the on/off, cant remember exactly, I think some of them are for powering the lights in the switch so they light up at night, etc.
You need one power wire to the switch, and a ground to the switch. Every accessory will need a wire to the switch. Depending on load, each accessory should be slaved with a relay. The switch should be controlling the coil of a relay, and the load of the relay should be the accessory.... Again, depending on the load of the accessory, and the switch rating.. If the switch has multiple isolated SPST, or SPDT switches, you might be able to send multiple power wires to the switch, and not use relays, depending on the load of the switch, and accessories
PS - Make sure everything is fused, not just direct off the battery.
Fused positive to terminals 2 and 6.
Lights or load to terminal 2.
Negative to terminals 7 and 8.
This should get it done for you.
I put an auxillary relay in the battery compartment to take the load off the small guage wires in the viking.
It consists of 4 wires, Positive (LIVE all the time), Negative, Load (only on when ignition is on) and a trigger wire which turns the relay on with the ignition.
I attached it to the battery positive with a 20 amp inline fuse .
Key off ! Everything Off !
I ride in northern Saskatchewan, your battery goes dead. Big Trouble. We never ride alone up here. Bears, Wolves, Cougars(not the downtown type either) we have them all.
Thanks Ultratech and Krazy Dave boy I'm glad I dont have to worry about Wolves and Cougars, we do have bears getting in the trash once in awhile, I guess I need to get relay, should I get 1 relay per switch?
