Typical Black Rocker Switch with what i believe to be push to reset buttons.
Im wiring up a Black Oak 20" LED bar on the top for night visibility. I have 3 open rocker switches on the bottom of the block so I chose to power this on the last switch. The LED will run for about 2 minutes before tripping the fuse so to speak. I wait 5 minutes or so, press the button and power comes back on. It runs for another 2 minutes give or take and off it goes again. Any suggestions? Here is the specs on the LED Bar. Im pretty sure im wired to 10A fuses so maybe the 8.4 amps it may draw is too much??
