who would have thought an one off switch wuld be so complicated? but i just bought one with six connections, heres a pic. any ideas on how you wire it up. before i start my wiring system for the car....
What you have there is a double pole double throw (DPDT) switch.
If you want to use it as a simple on and off switch then connect one wire to one of the centre terminals and the other wire to the terminal directly below it. (with the OFF symbol at the bottom) You will need to solder and insulate both connections to the switch.
thanks very much. i just thoughtm on/off, can't be simpler than that. Nut you buy it and they've renamed on/off as DPDT, thats crazy shit for ya.
As i've got ten on the dash doing lots of differenty things might be useful to read u on them and yes i'm soldering all connections. Cheers.
cheers buddy, i've got to do my own system and i'm using relays for headlghts, full beam, dizzy and horn and starter. The rest should be fine, indicators, wiper, washer, side lights, to go through the switches. I'll get some 2mm then, 30 m is only 7 quid and should do the whole car, i'll use the 0.3 to wire up the gauges. all sound good?
Thats the only thing, as i'm having a missile style starter i need to 'prime' the ignition by having a switch to turn on the electricity to the coil so it will run. Should work as long as i don't leave it on, melts like an ice baby in kansas. I'll have a red light to warn me.
