Adding LEDs - Need Advice on connecting to ACC Switch


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I’m adding LEDs tIMG_6922.jpg.bf7b361776d274783c2786477c45a247.jpgo my interior – I have two A CC rocker switches and stuck on how to hook up. Pictures below, the yellow acts as a bridge between the two. Any ideas on how to hook into this? Help is really appreciated

If using single color LEDs, you just need to find the switched 12V output of an unused switch and connect the LEDs B+ to that terminal and the LEDs B- to a ground. If using RGB, then you need an RGB controller. You can then use an ACC switch to power ON/OFF the RGB controller.

 I have used the XKGlow Bluetooth controller on my two previous boats.  You can control everything on your phone via their app.  I simply wired the controller to a switch at the helm.  Once turned on you can control all your leds with the phone app.

The yellow should provide 12V to the switch at the middle terminal.  Like they said above, choose the open terminal beside the yellow wire that has 12V when the switch is on.  The terminal is normally on the opposite end of the direction the switch throws.
