    So I recently bought a pair of LP6 Pros and they're awesome. I'm trying to put in a different switch that is a 6 pin 3 position switch that has a red led indicator. The switch that came with the harness is a 3 position 6 pin toggle with no led indicator. The issue I'm having is the LED light is on when the switch is off but when I turn the lights on high or low the led goes off. I tried switching the pins around seeing of maybe I had something switched around but I can't seem to get it to work. Hoping someone might have a solution. Here is the switch I'm trying to use.

    The LED is internally wired. It should come on in both the up and down position and be off in the middle.

    Yeah that's what I thought too. I'm just taking my truck next week to a guy that just does electrical stuff on vehicles.

    So you don't run a wire back from the lights to the switch.

    Did you pay attention to that plastic crossbar on the back of the switch? Pics 2,3,and 4 are backwards from pic 1.
