PIAA On/Off switch

I have a Hannagan Trike that uses a PIAA Light switch to turn on the auxiliary gas tank pump. It is a small oval design with a compression push on/push off switch plus a duel color led that is supposed to indicate status. One color for system available, and another color for pump running. The problem: I can't tell one color from the other.

So, has anyone modified the switch to show only when the pump is running? Or, is there another switch that will replace it?

Thanks,
Richard

Re: PIAA On/Off switch

What colors can you see?

If you put a green filter over the display you will have green and Yellow.

Put a blue filter over the display and you will have pink and light or sky blue. In the end, any single pull single throw toggle switch will wotk.

Or, If you are adventures, you can use any 12V dome light to indicate the circuit to the pump is "ON".
