Putting a switch in an awning light

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Can anyone advise me on the correct wiring please. I am replacing an old switched light above the door with an unswitched one and putting a switch on the inside.  I have bought a switch from Screwfix, which has com and then L1 and L2.  I also have a live and neg from the van and a live and neg from the light.

Which goes where?  

 

Thanks

Neg from van direct to neg from light. Live from van to com and 'live' from light to L1. If switch works upside down then move Live from light to L2.

It is better to call live, pos for positive.

Connect the Negative from the van direct to the negative terminal on the light.

 

Connect the positive from the van to the Com terminal on the switch.

 

Connect the L1 terminal from the switch to the positive connection on the light and voila, it should all work correctly. You dont need to worry about the L2 connection on the switch (its for two way switching)
