PIAA 1100x Switch Power not needed w/ AutoSwitch??
Hi...it's been a while since I've posted!
I just installed PIAA 1100x's and added the AutoSwitch Model 5NB on my 2001 K1200LT. Everything is working as advertised, the turn signal cancel button works great, as well as the PIAA lighted switch that came with the light kit.
My question is, do you need to leave the PIAA lighted switch connected or can it be removed completely once the Autoswitch is installed?
The reason I ask is because I just realized that if the PIAA lighted switch (3 pin connector) is removed then the Autoswitch & turn signal cancel button continue to control the lights...which is great!
Second, I disconnected the 12v power source from the PIAA lighted switch, the Autoswitch & turn signal cancel button function & the lights continue to work. It seems to me that there's no need to have two switches or two power sources wired when one of each will do the job?
I'm my missing something here...any thoughts or suggestions?
