Hooking up pull/push light switch

2 posts in this topic

The switch in my Lund 16 went bad while the son was using my boat (for the entire summer) and he dis-connected all wires and bought a new switch but didn't take note of what went where.

I am in search of a schematic to get this back to normal. Enough of smoking wires and sparks. Just a bow and stern light powered off a battery. Switch has 2 pulls in operation but has only 3 terminals for wires. I tried all possible logical connections and they didn't work. It has to be something so simple. I would guess 1 terminal to be hot and the other 2 are for the respective light but that does not work either ?????

Thanks in advance

You are correct, 1 is hot and the other 2 are loads. Is 1 of the terminals by itself on 1 side of the switch and the other 2 are together on the other side?

When you determine which terminal is the hot one, you should have no voltage coming ouf either of the other 2 with switch pushed all the way in. With switch pulled out to the 1st postiion, you should have voltage coming out of 1 of the "load" terminals-this is the stern light. With the switch pulled all the way out, you should have voltage coming out of both of the "load" terminals. Hook the bow light to the one that has power with the switch pulled all the way out. I hope that is what you are looking for.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
