I just trying to install some spot lights. First time using the aux switches. I hook them up to aux 3 (I think, orange). Nothing. They worked with the battery and I also jumpered to the battery after I found aux 3 not working. Turned on just fine. I also noticed none of my aux buttons light up when pressed. Should they light up even if nothing is connected?

Did you turn on the aux switches within the settings on the radio unit?

Yes I did. But shouldn't the small light on the switches turn on regardless?
Check your battery levels. There are certain components that don't function when the battery is below (and I'm guessing here) 12V. Every now and then I notice mine won't turn on, and at the same time that happens, my BlackVue cameras won't turn on either. Both have that 12V threshold, and immediately start working once the batteries are back up to standards.

May not be your issue, but worth a shot. Try charging them overnight to see what happens.

Yes, this is also a possibility in regard to Aux switches.... Usually though, you will get an EVIC message saying Aux switches are temporarily disabled... OP, did not mention such a message though... When battery(s) are brought up to snuff, Aux will again function...

Sure, bringing batteries up to snuff so to speak with a battery tender/maintainer may just help this issue. Worth a try for sure.

I had read that thread but I have absolutely no idea where I would find that switch bank. I did check the fuses that were mentioned in that thread though.
@tomslusher

You have a warranty... just go and have Service Dept. Tech figure it out for you if you can't determine what is the issue..
