wiring switch for 2 step feature

im in the process of wiring up a clutch switch for the 2 step feature. now im going to be wiring it through a relay but i was curious on whether you guys had the switch toggle to ground or toggle the power to the relay. thanks. zack

Why would you wire it through a relay?

One end of the switch goes to IGN 12V, the other to the aux input.

because i dont like having a hot wire wired directly to a switch like that. unless you know of a high amperage switch i can mount to the clutch bracket

the auxilary input does not use large amount of amps.
But you can use a relay if you insist.

Both ways you suggest of wiring the relay are acceptable. both will work.

what^^^. if you use a pos+ switch to activate the relay you run into the chance of it shorting out, but if you use a ground sgnal to toggle the relay you dont have to worry about and problems. well anyways thanks guys.
