Wiring lighted switches

Hi, I'm going to wire a few lighted switches, I would like to wire it to dashboard lights so they turn on with the rest, does anyone have a link or an advice on how to wire them, in particular what to connect the wires to. Here's the switch, bottom part is ON when dashboard lights are on (and top LED is ON when the switch turned on). Thanks.

Are the top and bottom part two different circuit? Without a diagram or knowing more about the switch it's hard to show you.
If they are two different circuit it's as simple as wiring the lower light "Winch Isolator" part to the Jeep's dash light wire.
Top part would be wire to where it get power when it's flip.

correct, top and bottom LEDs are two separate circuits, my question is where do I tap into on my JKU to wire one of the circuits to light up with dashboard lights? do I run the wires to electrical panel under the hood or somewhere under the dashboard? thank you

Theres a orange cable with a gray tracer behind the switch cluster .and i think it runs along the fire wall on the driverside where the brake pedal is . The orange and gray wire controls the dashlights .if you pull the dash apart the wire is in the loom that goes to the window switches.assuming you have window switches . What i did is find the wire ,take a sharp razor blade cut the insulation on the wire and twisted wire around the cable little solder and tape or you could use one of the tap wire clips

This thread is a few weeks old but I have another solution if you haven't already solved your issue. It's an LED so it doesn't draw a lot of power. I rigged the upper lights on my switches to come on when the Jeep was running and the lower lights to come on when the switch was activated. both LEDs share a common ground. To power the upper LED, I went to AutoZone or Advance Auto parts or one of those and picked up a fuse tap.



I found an unused spot in the fuse box to tap into that was only hot when the ignition was turned on.



In my case, I don't have a seat heater so that spot was open. I drilled a small hole in the wall of the fuse box, ran the wire from the tap through it, and sealed it with silicone. I ran that wire to the positive on the upper switch LEDs. They come on when I start the Jeep.



And the lower LEDs come on when the switch is activated.



Here's the fuses and what they do. M9 is the fuse for the heater.
