Wireing problems

So it's probably been posted 100 times but I'm having trouble finding out what exactly to do. So I have my two fog lights mounted to the corners on my windshield and a rugged ridge switch inside on my pillar pod I have the posotive and negative wires that are coming from my relay connected to my battery so my problem is that my switch that is in my car is constantly on little blue light and is draining my battery I need to wire my harness so that it only comes on when the ignition is in but how can I do that when I only have two wires that are connected to my battery? It also has a fuse on the wires harness as well

Wireing problems

Run accessory power to your switch.

I assume a three prong switch. One line from the switch to ground, one to the relay and one to accessory power.

your wiring should look like this. if you have a lighted switch, the 3rd lug will go to ground.

Yes. If your power to the switch is direct from the battery that's your issue. You can tap into one of the cig lighter lines, one is accessory and one is always hot, I forget which is which.

Or this

the power outlet in your center console is always hot and the one on your dash is accessory.

So for my harness it already had a switch installed and so all I did was cut the switch off and have the three wires hooked up to my switch buy it kept my switch light always on but now I ran a wire from my cig lighter or whatever you want to call it and into my switch and pulled on of the wires that was connected to my switch out so now the switch is only on when the ignition is on but my battery light on my dash is still on any reason why I even charged the battery

drive down to your local chain parts house and have them test your battery. you may have a bad battery. sometimes when a battery is going bad and it gets drained too far down, it will no longer charge up or keep a charge.
