Fitted the EDC Switch!!

Well finally I got the edc switch fitted to the correct wiring behind the light switch - thanks guys!

Just a question - why does my EDC switch not have a green light on the "S" setting?

Regards

Hope that works otherwise you may need a new switch. Still at least you will have a place to put it.
