Okay, so I have a small project that requires the use of an illuminated switch.
It has 3 terminals. Ground, Load, and Power. I'm running off of a 12 volt lantern battery.
I currently have it wired in series through the + path of my circuit. And, there in lies the problem. I need the full current of the battery to come out on the other side, but the way I have it wired drops the current to almost nill.
Thing is, if I wire it any other way, the light wont light.
I can run to the Load terminal, and get full current through the switch, but I have no light. To get light, I have to run it through the Power terminal, and I dont get enough current.
I'm stumped on how to make it light up and get full current on the other end.
Any electrical experts out there, or just plain anybody, that knows, your help would be greatly appreciated.
