Recommended Posts

i have a 05 v ride and i dont know how to tell if a have mux style or not (little confused) have a light tower bar coming this week and would like to install it, can i not just ground the light to a terminal ground strip, and switch the hot off the acc switch on the dash and protect it with a fuse. the way my setup is now the fuse panel has no wires going to Tower Light but the two aux switches i need already have power to them should i remove the present wires from the switches and power both from the fuse panel so they are protected there insted of the old squared or inline fuses

You have rocker switches, Mux switches are digital.

If the switch didn't have constant voltage how do you think it would work when you fliped the switch? Sounds like it's wired fine I'd leave it alone.

Step 1 - Turn your caps lock OFF.

Step 2- Proceed with your plan, sounds good. You just need to wire your lights to the switch.

Didn't know you were being picked on. You're new here and probably don't know any better so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Chill out dude, I can tell you don't socialize much.

there is nothing valuable in this topic and it is not being taken in a positive direction so why not just close it.
