I noticed on dash that the light on my switch for my sport low mode is always on. Magnum said they wired it up exactly how the instructions say. So just curious if anyone else's is doing this also.

Just seems wierd it would be built so the switch light is on, in both the on & off position. :crazy:

I think it was designed to match the OEM switches which are on all the time....you can change out the switch to a dual lamp switch where the light is on all the time but when you turn on the switch the upper section lights up a different color. It would require a jumper wire for the secondary lighted color and a new switch.

I just dont like the constant draw off the battery.

Unless you are leaving the car on with the engine off, you wont be pulling off of the battery. The stator will be powering it while the engine is running....and the draw from a lighted switch is minimal.

Yeah I know but it means while sitting in the garage it needs to be on a tender.

No, I think mine is always on even when the key is off. I'll have to check it when I get it back.

That's wrong then......They tapped into the wrong power source then. The only non-switched power in the console area is at the ignition/gauge power fed by fuse F8.
