Thanks but I don't know what half of the stuff in between means. I need something that explains what all the components in between are.

doublequackboom..

If what's already posted does not help, if you could post a link to the switch that you are using, or a schematic to the switch I can probably assist you in an understandable fashion.

Its a rotatory switch that is commonly used on fire engines. QQB all the neg wires go in to the same neg post there will be a single post labeled 1 another labeled 2 you only connect the batter cables to the 3 post. On the one I have taken apart the Positive 1&2 have a red making and a +sing the neg has - and is black.

I understand that much and I also understand its a basic rotary battery swith. The reason I wanted a hershey is because it is very compact vs. a big bulky battery switch.
