I will shed a little light on wiring this switch. First of all you have a two side's bank "a" and bank "b'" and terminals "1" through "5" on both sides. Bank "a" is a separate circuit from "b" except for the LED indicators, the gold spades on each end.

For example I used one switch to wire a pair of rear facing lights on the roof rack atop our jeep to come on with the ignition on or with backup lights.

Terminals "3" both sides are power in, terminals "2" and "4" are power out to accessory, and terminals "1" and "5" are LED power and ground.
On my switch the power from the reverse lights attach to terminal "3a" and the power out to the relay comes from terminal "4a" with a jumper from "4a" to "1a" for Red LED power and terminal "1b" to ground.
I have power in from ignition to terminal "3b" and power out to relay wired to terminal "2b" with a jumper from "2b" to "5B" for Yellow LED power and "5a" to ground.

I hope this helps and I uploaded a picture (above in customer images) of the back of the switch where if you look close you can see the "a" "b" and "1" - "5" numbers.

These are excellent switches and were exactly what I was looking for. Using the wiring details that Dale provided and about 10 minutes of testing, I was able to wire my auxiliary reverse lights exactly how I wanted them. Note that the gold blades at each end are used to control the respective backlights. A1 and B1 are for the red backlight and A5 and B5 are for the yellow backlight. I used the following wiring:

A1: Jumper to A4
A2: Empty
A3: Splice with factory reverse lights
A4: Jumper to A1 & B2
A5: Jumper to B3

B1: Accessory ground & jumper to B5
B2: Relay, jumper to A4 & A1
B3: Accessory power, jumper to A5
B4: Empty
B5: Jumper to B1

Some of the jumpers are redundant and can be eliminated. For this setup you will need three power jumpers, one ground jumper and ten insulated 1/4" blade connectors of appropriate sizes. Two of these will be used as caps with no wires attached.

With this setup, the reverse lights can be controlled by either the switch or the factory reverse lights. When on the yellow ON position, the lights come on as long as accessory power is on. When in the red ON position the auxiliary reverse lights are controlled by the factory reverse lights.

Also, the amber light is on when the accessory power is on so the switch can be seen at night and the red light is used as an indicator light for when the auxiliary reverse lights are on.

The switch arrived quickly, packed securely. Just what I had expected when I ordered it.

It seems to be very sturdy; the action feels durable.

Just to respond to the comments in some other reviews: I didn't have any trouble wiring this switch. It's a DPDT switch, so, you know, the function of 6 of the pins is obvious. When you remember that it has 2 LEDs, the function of the other 4 pins become obvious too. The switch came with brief instructions and a simple diagram; Both were helpful. But, this switch gets wired like any DPDT switch I guess.

I installed this in my truck for foglights. I found some other switches at auto parts stores, but they were low quality compared to this one. This one feels like quality, and it's rated as waterproof.

The wiring diagram tells you absolutely nothing. I tried tons of combinations till one worked. Over all good product though.

This might be a really great rocker switch if it weren't for the wiring diagram that came with it. They are almost impossible to understand. I actually tried to research how to wire this switch up on the internet with no luck, and finally had to call my uncle which is an electronics engineer for help. He looked at the provided wiring diagram, and wound up throwing it away and using his meter to figure the switch out.
