      Replacing the same switch again

        Comments about RadioShack SPST 12VDC/30A Illuminated Toggle Switch with Red/Green LED:

        I bought one of these switches to control transmission lock-up in my truck (it replaced a factory switch that finally failed after 20 years). The fact that it has a different color for the switch position makes it easy to monitor at a glance without adding separate led indicators on the panel.
        That switch failed after one month so I am giving the product another try with a new switch. The wiring was difficult, but I finally got it hooked up.

          Comments about RadioShack SPST 12VDC/30A Illuminated Toggle Switch with Red/Green LED:

          I bought this switch to replace old paddle type plain switches for offroad and emergency lighting. I bought one at first because, well, they're not cheap like the other switches and i needed to make sure they worked for me. I love the off and on indicator colors, main reason why I bought it. I have other "always on" indicators like the red led in my vehicle because I do not run my switches off of key-on power,instead i use a constant battery connection so the lights and strobes can be on even when there is no key in the ignition, and they do not run down your battery, even when the vehicle is off for days. As far as wiring issues, if you dont want to play around with it or havent ever wired anything, then dont get it, but it took me about 5 seconds to figure it out. I use a plastic mount, so i needed to ground the switch, otherwise it grounds from the metal its mounted on. Its much easier finding a glowing red switch than a plain black one at night. Its nice having a switch that lights up when its on, but its even better to have one that lights up when its off.

              Wiring Diagram
              I normally do not write reviews, but I thought I would share how I got this switch to work.
              + twelve volts goes to ACC from battery
              - twelve volts goes to ground from battery
              Power on terminal on switch goes to + connection on lights or whatever you hook to.

              Here is the catch, for the LED's on the switch to work you must run a second -ground to the lights or whatever you hook up from the -/ground on the battery. So that will be two -/grounds from the battery. One to switch and one to lights or whatever.
              I hope this helps.

                    if u hook ground to ground and power to battery (+) u will only get green when on and no lights when off.

                    if u use ground to ground and acc to battery (+) you will get red when off and green when on which is opposite of the label.

                          Bought 6, soldered them as per label on them into boat instrument panel. Green light works when on, Red light does not work when off. Un soldered and re soldered switching accessory and power terminals. Now they work as advertised. The [*] labeled them wrong, big surprise.They look pretty at night, not very bright in sunlight though. I would recommend to a friend only with an explanation of how to connect them.

                          My brother found wiring schematic on internet using the part number. My switch has ground on side. Pin closest to ground is ACC; pin furthest away is power. Toggle base can also act as ground if installed in grounded, metal box.

                            Sadly it was difficult to get them to hook up with both of the color lights working properly. With the help of another persons review it became very easy. they work great and i would buy them again.

                                Comments about RadioShack SPST 12VDC/30A Illuminated Toggle Switch with Red/Green LED:

                                I didn't know that radioshack did away with their tech support department and of course no one was intelligent enough to include a wiring diagram on the packaging of this switch. I guess we're just supposed to know how to use it, right? (Radioshack sales department told me to call an electrician :<)

                                So here it is:
                                There are two models of this switch. One with 2 pins on the bottom and one to the side and the other switch has all 3 pins on the bottom. If you got the later then all 3 pins will be labeled. If you were unfortunate enough to get the switch with the pin on the side then this is how you should wire the switch:

                                pin 1: This is the pin on the side. Attach this to ground.

                                pin 2: This is your output to your device. (ACC)

                                pin 3: This is your power source.
