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.
