Embarrassing Wiring Question
#11
Good job that you've sorted it!
Actually the manufacturer of the switch already tried to help you and tried to be clever, but he failed to a certain extent Big Grin
The red and green wire correspond to the red and green switch, so that's obvious. However the common blue/yellow wire should have been red but that is already taken now. He could have used another color for the red switch and ideally a common color for the common wires instead. And just use a single wire. Would be much easier to understand.

It was a little confusing but it worked out well. I like starting with small projects and working up to the larger ones. It is less expensive if something goes wrong and less risk since smaller battery packs do not have as much electricity stored. Thanks again for all the excellent advice.
