Power Side Switch Circuit

A power side switch is a switch located between the power supply and load. Sometimes the power side switch is called hot side switch because it is located on the hot side, that is, before the load, in a circuit. The Stop Lamp switch is a good example. When the brake pedal is depressed, the Stop Lamp switch closes sending battery voltage to the ECM. This signals the ECM that the vehicle is braking.

The following switches act as switches for the ECM. Usually, they are supply side switches. Note in the figure(s) their location between the battery and ECM. Many switches that commonly use battery voltage as the source are:

• Ignition Switch.

• Park/Neutral Switch.

• Transfer Low Position Detection Switch.

• Transfer Neutral Position Detection Switch.

• Transfer 4V;D Detection Switch.
