Aux light switch indicator light

Ok, I tried the search function but I didn't see anything relavent to my question.

I just installed my Aux windshield lights and everything works except the switch indicator light. It's a radio shack 3 prong switch with a small led that is supposed to come on when the lights are on. I tried the switch that came with the lights and it doesn't light up either.

Any ideas?

the switch has 3 terminals, 1 is ground, the other supply and the 3rd is output
If you are sure your ground is good and on the correct terminal then try swapping your supply and output wires.
The switch will turn the lights on and off regardless if you have the supply and output wires on the correct terminals, but the indicator light won't work.

mini-hijack... based on this can I just cut the on/off switch that came with my IPF 968s & wire up to a to another switch (say a rocker)?

Sure. A switch is still a switch by any name.
