Probably should've put this in the "ask a stupid question" thread, but here goes. I have a hidden bumper light bar, and had it hooked up with a push switch from Amazon. It wasn't flush, and my knee shattered it one day. Long story short, I bought a caliraised button that actually fits. My friend gave me a new harness (probably from Amazon), and I am wondering if I'm able to use this switch? I don't know anything about wiring, but can have someone at my work put it together. I just need to know how the wires match up. Anyone have any advice on what wires match up where? Please excuse my ignorance. Haha

Take pic with entire harness in it and we can talk you through it. There is a relay on it correct. Should be easy to fix

Where is the harness you were originally using? Did you get rid of it with the broken button?
I still have it hooked up to my light under the hood. I will disconnect it and send pictures. Maybe it would just be easier to wire it to that one?

Looks like they ran 2 lightbars off the 4 wires.

Now as far as switch.

Ive actually never ran that harnest cause I used an auxilary fuse panel where only one ground, one hot, and one wire per lightbar goes into cab. So many wires using a complete harnest unless your running just one or two bars total. But three bars would be 9 wires.
