help with my lights

So I bought some rigid lights from a member on here and thought it be a plug n play system since he had them hooked up. So of course I want to test them to make sure the work and plug them in and hook them up to the battery and nothing!!! The switch dont even light up. Could the switch be bad? Am I missing something else I should be doing? The fuse is good in the harness

My BAD! I'm so sorry about that! When I pulled the wiring from my dash, I had to unhook everything and couldn't see where it came from, so I had to guess... and I guessed wrong

So sorry for the mild heart attack I'm sure you had, and I'm glad you got it figured out
