You'll need to connect that to a relay and use the relay to ground A12.
That's what I was afraid of.

I dunno what's so hard about a DPST.

I think it would still work with some wiring knowledge, then again I'm no electrician.

I've seen people wire up completely simple aftermarket switches that have worked, and this is just an OEM-style alternative. The hardest part about this whole thing is finding an EXT idle switch since they're so elusive.
