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.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
