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.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
