    Yup, that will do it. If you look back at my photos, the bottom terminal of the switch is ground.(white).
    The connector side of the green wire (blue in my case) goes to the centre terminal.
    The other end of the green wire (yellow in my case) goes to the top terminal.
    Look at post 141 of this thread for the pics. The blue wire coming out of the connector body will green in your case, cut, and spliced to whatever wire you are using.

    So i see ehat he did wrong after reading your version through. He grounded the wrong side of the wire coming ftom the fuse. The light green wire or blue in pic.
    Like you said it comes from the fuse so that side should not go to ground.
    That said you should check your switch with a meter to insure that side of the green wire dosnt go to ground. If your not sure about what i said ask someone to help you with electronic / electrical background. I could draw a pic but it probably wont help.

    Awesome thanks man I'm still learning this stuff as I go, with it being used for work is a slight occupational hazard heh..

    Yup, mixing those up = shorting +12V straight to ground, which is why the fuse blew. Follow jqueener's diagram and you should have it.

    I find it helps to draw it out, as a simple drawing. a lot easier to follow when your working on it then to try and keep reading words on a cell phone under the dash.

    A SPDT on-on switch must be used, but that could be a 5pin relay controlled by a SPST switch like you want to use. Pin 30 of the relay is then equivalent to the center terminal of my switch, pin 87a on relay is the top terminal of my switch, and pin 87 is the bottom terminal of my switch.

    Pins 85 and 86 are the control coil, one ground, one power, and switched by your SPST push button switch.

    Yep but that's a lot of work just to not use a double throw switch
