Depends on the type of switch you have. The cheaper rockers have three terminals: 12V hot, ground (for the light), and load. These will not light the way you want. Lamp comes on when the switch is on.

You need a switch that has seperate terminals just for the lamp.

You need to find the wire that supplies the heater control module lamps. That dims with the cluster lights.
