The great thing about a lighted rocker switch is that you’ll always know when the circuit is closed. So to ensure you always have this convenience, there are a few steps you’ll need to take to ensure your lighted rocker switch is properly wired up and will light up when you switch it on.
- Hook up your first power wire from the terminal of your led to the power connection on the switch.
- The second power wire will be connected from the accessory connection of the switch to the battery.
- Connect the first ground wire from your led’s terminal to the ground connection of the switch.
- Connect your last wire from the switches ground connection to the battery.

I think you’ll have to use a relay if you use a dependent LED switch
You could do it easier though with this independent one:

Will a lit toggle switch in the off position drain the battery?
