It's a later black switch...it's not here at work with
me but from what I recall there are 3 standard-sized
(maybe 5mm wide) pins in a row and two narrow (maybe
2-3mm wide) pins in a row at right angles to the other
row.  They are numbered 1 through 5...will double
check when I get home.

I plan to install the lights to be independent of the
headlights so at least I will have the option of using
them alone.  God knows we need them in Newfoundland.
