noob electrical led light switch question.
« on: July 17, 2013, 05:36:30 PM »
Hi there.

Im sure alot of you will laugh at the silliness of this question,  but have made up a stainless switch panel for a couple things and have a genuine question.

My fans were running originally on a "on/off" toggle switch.

I have changed all my switches to the led type (3 points to wire instead of pwr/earth only)

Can someone please let this idiot know the wiring for the new led switch, as in so when switch is on, fans run and led is glowing.

Currently I can get the led to switch on/off, but fans fail to start.  Also tested old switch to ensure no fuses etc had blown, and old switch works fans fine.

Thanks for any input/lolz at this. Wiring just freaks this little ducks head.

What have you wired the 3rd point to?

So basicallly there will be a commen a switch out and an earth. so the commen will have your +12v (IGN feed or what ever) the switch out will be the switch wire for your fan relay and the earth pin will connect to an earth.

Ok.

I've managed to have led and fans running when car is on acc (first key position)

But when turning key to "on", led goes out, but fans continue to run. This is also the same when car is running.

Then I successfully managed to lock the keys in the ignition when finishing up...

This is the basic diagram I have gone off




Just using a test light I have picked a random wire that was receiving a signal.
