  1. Help! anyone I have a Zero kit car that I am finalling getting round to sort out the wiring. The engine and switches are from a 1988 Sierra. I have wired it up the best i can switching the live side of the sytem which the supplied loam suggested. I keep reading on the forum about ground switching. I have problems with my circuit and i am wondering if i have used the correct method. The RHS column switch has a number of the contacts linking to one of the fixing screws in certain switching modes which puzzled me. I connected this direct to earth and was blowing fuses so this was soon

I have tried to understand the switch even got a second one thinking that was the problem and have checked the circuit a number of times but cannot find the solution. Something is obviouly incorrect. I have attached a couple of drawi
