Hella light switch wont light up

I hooked up my hella lights and cant get the switch to iluminate? The lights work but the switch wont light up, I have one wire on the middle pin to the relay, one wire to the cigarette lighter hot wire and one wire grounded, I can switch the wires and iluminate the light but then the lights dont work? What did I do wrong?

I had two and one of mine burned out. Hella sent me in a new one with a lot of e-mails and complaining. New one worked fine. Maybe the light in the switch is burned out like mine was.

Switch is good, if I switch the wires around it lights up but the lights will not! So I have one wire to ground (same ground as the lights), one wire to cig lighter for keyed power and on wire to the relay. I am stumped. will mes with tomorow.
