How the hell do I install this? I see how to get it on the case, but does anyone know which wires go where?

Likely one wire will go to pin 2 and the other to pin 3. Is that a spring-return momentary contact switch? In other words, will it stay up when you release it? If not, then you must keep in mind you don't want to keep it in the up position as that may have unintended consequences.

No, it flips up and stays up. I think it's intended to be a computer power switch mod, but I see what you mean. I don't have a 9v battery on me.


Edit: LMAO! There's a website printed on the switch. You can see it from the picture.

It looks to be a double pole momentary switch. 1/2 will open or close a circut and 2/3 will do the same but opposite of 1/2. When the switch is in 1 position 1 circut will be closed and 1 open. When you flip the switch the circut will reverse. Perfect for a cmos reset switch.

Well in that case
...it will do the same thing....but without the momentary function.....lol. Still perfect for the cmos switch.

The toggle switch for my power on the "Jeep Mod" is momentary...

I have to flip the switch, the computer powers up then I flip the
switch again to keep the computer from turning off...

If I were to leave the switch in the up position, the computer
would turn off, just like holding the power switch on the front
of your case to turn the power off.

A momentary switch is exactly what it sounds like,only stays in the position,momentarily. Has a default position,either off or on. When it is pressed it goes to the opposite of its default,and when released goes back to its default. A perfect example is a stock PC power switch. When you press it,it doesnt stay in,it comes back out. Its default position is off,and when pressed it goes to on.
