    Let me get this straight,the light works from the cigarette lighter,but not when hooked to the battery through a switch ?

    If that's the case,are you hooking up both a power and a ground to the battery ? It needs both to work,and they must be hooked up with the correct polarity. The switch you have is good right ? and it is turned on ? try bypassing the switch to see if it works.
