10k mod not workin

ok im tryin to put this thing on a switch got the right wires hooked up to! i got a witch that glows but idk if it does n i have i wired from the harness wire through 22ga wire soldered to my resistor then to the switch then back to the other wire when switch is off truck runs normal when i turn it on it lopes and no power like normal or when u just put the stupid resistor in any help what did i do wrong?

Gonna need some pictures of that glowing witch.

For a switch with a indicator light, you will have three connections to make. You need a 12v source, return to whatever your running and a ground. This won't work directly for what your doing. For the ICP resistor mod, you need to have the switch connected to both wires on the ICP with a resistor in series.

To make the switch you have work, you need a 12v normally open relay. You will use four contacts on the relay. The two switched contacts will be connected to the ICP wires with the resistor in series on one of the wires. The two remaining contacts will have one ground and one 12v feed coming from the switch. The switch will have a 12v source, a output to the relay and a ground.

Another method would be a double pole switch and separate indicator lamp. You would have four connections on the switch, two connected to the ICP wires with a resistor in series and the other two would power a lamp. One connected to 12v, one to the lamp and the second connection on the lamp to ground.

u fryed the resister. cause 10k doesnt give u a lopy idle. 1.5k or just str8 touching the two wire together(no resister)

what i did was tap into the two wires, ran them back and put the resister on on wire(by a butt connector) then to the switch

doesnt work any more idk why it lopes and acts like its no resistor and i have them hooker up to the bottom pin and the top left pin with wire clips

Pull the plug off the ICP sensor and connect a multimeter to the end. Set the multimeter to read ohms. Post the reading from the switch in both positions.
