Upfitter switches

Is there any reason why my upfitter switches would read 24V instead of the 12V, all four seem to be doing this. Thanks for any help.

What are you using to check the voltage? It would be impossible (unless you have the batteries installed incorrectly) to get 24 volts.

im using a digital multimeter, and i know i was testing the upfitter wires because when i switched the switches off it read zero, and when on they all read 24. I have had no issues whatsoever electrically with the truck and would imagine that improperly installed batteries would probably cause more issues (these are the same batteries the truck came with). perhaps i will check the multimeter to make sure it is still functioning properly.

Low batteries on the multimeter can cause screwy readings.
