Hello brothers and sisters, I have recently taken on the hobby of electrical wiring as a novice and need some help to figure this out.

I have trouble understanding and physically wiring on my little wiring table i have. The following are the contents I have: one small light, two push button switches (exactly like the pic), a 5 pin relay (exactly like the pic), a toggle switch to control the flow of electricity from main power supply and a FUSE .

I want it wired so that when I press Switch A the light turns on and when I press Switch B the light would turn off. Using the relay.

Is this possible?

Thank you in advance!!s-l1000.jpg

to control the flow of electricity from main power supply and a FUSE .
You've posted this thread in the Electrical forum, not the Automotive forum and you talk about connecting it to 'the main power supply'.... Do you mean the house electricity supply?

It's a relay meant for DC 12 volts from what I can see. If you do connect that relay to a main electricity supply the best case senario is it will be damaged but more likely it will explode and could cause injury.

Sorry it’s a small Dc 12 power supply

Not necessarily, but would be better with a DPDT relay, the relay contacts would have to be though.
With that relay they do have to be rated for the full current.

Agree if you use a different relay, that is a different matter, however the op has specified the relay.

You could use two of that relay type and then you could reduce the current rating of the switches.
