Fog light switch for headlights

Post by antodeco » Sat Mar 26, 2022 10:06 pm

Hi all,
I'm forever leaving my lights on. I have a fog light switch that lights up, but have no fog lights. Is it possible to just swap that switch to the headlight switch, so when my headlights are on, I'll have a lit up button (and physically see my lights are still on when inside)?

Thanks

No its a different type of switch internally and sure the light wouldn't be much brighter than the dash lights that would also be on.
I have a buzzer that operates if you open a door with the lights on. Get a 12volt buzzer and connect the + to the side lights and - to the door switch.

Thanks for that. I'll check out the buzzer option.

I don't have a normal dash, it's a motorbike dash so is always on when ignition is on, regardless of lights!
