little wiring help for abs kill switch

So if I am opening the brake light circuit to turn my abs OFF, do I send +12v or -12v to the toggle switch? I tried the neg and just popped a 10a STOP fuse

Uhhhhhhhhhh,

I'm not so sure the brake light circuit is involved with ABS at all.

The switch runs in series in order to interrupt (OPEN) the circuit or close it allowing normal operation.

if you are opening a circuit, you use a standard two prong switch, cut the wire in half and hook the two ends to the switch terminals.

Sounds like you got it figured out.

When shopping for the switch with two connectors on the back, it may be helpful to know this is called single-pole-single-throw or SPST.
