  • There are 3 terminals on this switch. Here is how I hooked it up for 12v power application (on-off switch for a battery)

    Ground- 470 ohm resistor to limit LED current. +- Battery Positive. LED-Supply voltage for circuit.

    The LED on the switch only comes on when the switch is in the ON position. If you want it illuminated whenever the battery is connected, swap the connections to + and LED.
