TD5 2001 reversing lamp switch rating

Hi, can anyone tell me the rating (amps) of the standard reversing lamp switch? I'm upgrading to a couple of switchable work lights and want to be able to switch them in with the reversing lamp when required, off road only of course! I'm guessing it could handle 2off S17 scenelites and a standard reversing light. That way there's no need for a relay. I stand to be corrected though Very Happy

One more thing, I'm sure I've seen a couple of wiring diagrams for switching in/out the lights from both the front and the rear of the cab but cannot find the one I was looking for again. Any clues Guy's? Thanks Thumbs Up Mike

My rear work light is switched on its own circuit to keep it legal, only a flick of a switch for extra light on reversing. I did once have a disco 2 which had to ring flood lights tapped into the reverse lights and that functioned fine whilst I had it so it should be fine with led lights Thumbs Up 90 wolf - Jasmin http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic39408.html
