Light up switch for back-up lights not working properly
I bought back up lights and they came with a switch that is supposed to light up when the lights are on. The back of the switch has 3 tabs. The wire from the battery is attached to the middle tab, and the hot from the lights is attached to the bottom (silver) tab. The top (gold) tab is empty. When it is wired like this, the back-up lights work, but the switch won't light up. If I re-arrange the wires on the switch any other way, the switch lights up, but the back-up lights do not. I even tried making a short lead to connect the empty tab to one of the others, but that didn't work no matter how I arranged it.
Help would be greatly appreciated!!
