Is it an illuminated switch? 2 wires for relay control and 1 for the illuminated switch. :twocents:

You know what there is a little light bulb on the switch. I bet that's the 3rd wire . Going to go out in a bit and cut up the harness and get this figured out

Looking at the drawing I would say its for the lite.  :tup:  By habit I will wire a indicator lite in the circuit after the relay to show me it the power is feeding thru. Quick check then says if it's the lite or relay. It also eliminates the random battery draw if not used for a while.
Switch is on and so should the indicator and the running lights work. If the running lights are out and the indicator is on makes chasing easier.

Appreciate all you help guys,  turns out I'm dumb. I was sure I saw three wires coming out from the light when I ran the harness , turns out there were only 2  :chuckle: a red and black. The Blue , White and Black i kept talking about started at the relay. It wasnt making any sense to me until Timberghost72 mentioned the illuminated aftermarket switch.   Thanks again guys.
