I have a 2021 Silverado 2500 truck and installed the upfitter switch wiring when I took delivery of the truck several months ago.

I have a few questions about proper functioning/using these switches.

First question, I’m using switch 5 for my beacon light. With the switch depressed, the beacon only comes on while the truck is running. Not on with “key on”/ accessory power on, (no key for my truck). Is this normal?

Second question, With or without the “key on”, my switch lights (switch indicator light) come on. So, if I have a switch depressed and turn off the truck and walk away, the switch light stays on. Is this normal?

I have nothing connected to switches 1-4 at this time.

Also, I do understand that switches 1 and 2 or 3 and 4 can be supplied with either constant power or switched power with the repositioning of their fuses. Assuming this is not an option for switch 5.

I removed the centermounted brake light from the cab and the wires were right there. I have a regular cab.
