Q: CAN YOU BUT A RUBBER BOOT FOR THE SWITCH.....GOING TO BE USED IN AN OFFRAOD CAR............. - by Alan (California)
A: We don't sell covers.
Q: well this switch help with my led interior lights i installed because they turn on all the time and i want a switch which will let me turn them on and off so in the day time they aint on
A: any on/off switch will work for your application. You will need to trace where the interior light circuit is in your car and put the switch between your light and where it receives power from.
Q: I will be using these with a series of pumps and fans on my project car.All the apliances will be rum with relays. Their wiring diagrams show the toggle running off the ground from the relay(or the apliance), some in conjunction with thermostats and inertia switches. If so, where does the Acc go? If you don't agree, how would you wire them?

Bill - by Bill (Snellville, Ga.)
A: we would need to see your wiring diagram to give you better info. In general your switch provide power to the relay coil(s) and this causes relay to engize powering your load. The circuit that powers the switch and relay coils does not have to be the same circiut and the one the relay is energizing. Basically 12 volts from switch to relay coil and then to ground.
Q: So your power is coming from the battery, then the ground hooks up to the ground cable, and then the neon positive cable hooks to the acc and then would the - cable coming from your neon go to the ground as well?
A: Yes that's correct. Battery to Power, positive wire of neon to Acc, Ground to a ground source, and the negative wire of the neon also to ground source.

If you have any questions about basic wiring techniques, you should browse the message boards - there's lots of info there.
Q: There are 3 prongs coming out of the toggle switch - I know the positive is coming from the battery, which part goes to the neons and which goes to the ground?
A: See the markings on the switch. From left to right:

Power: fused wire from battery
Acc: goes to the power wire of the lights you are powering (Acc stands for Accessory)
Ground: goes to ground

Q: Why is blue double the price of red and green?

I love the design of this switch and need about 16 of them for my project. - by Allen (Enola - PA)
A: Yes, this is a great switch. But as you've noticed, unfortunately blue is double the cost of red and green.

We buy from a switch supplier, mark the price up a bit, and then sell to you, the customer.

Our switch supplier charges us more than double for the blue than the red and green.

So rather than lose money selling the blue switch, we must increase the price to cover our costs plus a small profit.

We've thought about just not selling the blue switch, but we realize some people really need blue, and are willing to pay extra.

We've asked our suppliers many times why blue is more expensive, and they say the blue LED is more difficult to produce.

If the price of this blue switch is out of your budget, we encourage you to browse our many other switches.
