Answer: 
This is an illuminated switch. It is designed for the light to be on when the switch is off. The toggle does not light up when turned on. In fact, the toggle is illuminated when the toggle is in the off position. The toggle is not illuminated when the switch is in the on position. The illumination is intended to make the switch easy to see when in the off position and you need to turn a light on.

Answer: 
This would be impossible. It would require altering the internal configuration of the switch by the manufacture. What you could possibly do place a small led light within the circuit path. I would light up when the light is turned on just like that light.

I have a switch that controls a light in another room (the attic), so I want the indicator to be on when the light is on.

15 Amp Illuminated Toggle Switch, Clear is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality; dead after 6 months I installed this about 6 months ago, and it worked fine all along..until yesterday. The switch was illuminated find when off, but when I turned it 'on' I got a horrible arcing sound from the switch and the controlled lights flickered. With the arcing, I didn't keep the switch on long enough to see if the lights would finally stay illuminated. I was originally dismayed thinking I had made a poor connection when wiring, but I pulled the switch out of the wall and everything was nice and tight. Then I came here to read the reviews and now must agree that this is just a poor quality product. The do sell a 'commercial' version of the lighted switch, so I'm gonna try that one. If you're looking for an illuminated switch, I would recommend spending the extra 10 bucks for the "commercial" version, although I can't really (at this point) confirm that it's any better. But it really can't be worse!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Quality Control Bought seven of these and three were bad out of the box and one flickers. Considering the time wasted to go and buy, install, uninstall, and then return, simply not worth it. Avoid this product; spend the extra money and buy commercial grade.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Illuminated, minus the luminated part... The light given off by this thing is amazingly miniscule... I was thinking that in my shop I could walk in and be able to see it in the dark, not the case... You have to be looking directly at it in pitch black to be able to notice the light, it is so small, that when my electrician buddy was helping me install it he couldn't even tell there was a light and thought the switch was malfunctioning so I returned it, and when the second switch didn't light up, we actually turned all the lights out and shut the doors and standing a few feet from it could tell there was something there... I promise you a lightning bug puts off more light than this switch, it is NOT worth the 5$ i paid for it, and it will be returned shortly. Buy a good 3$ heavy duty switch and put a motion sensor flood light outside your shop, the light coming in from the open door will provide WAAAAY more visibility to the switch than its "Illumination" ever will.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Original with neon lasted 50 years! No lie! Bought 3. 1 flickers, 1 works sometimes if I jiggle it, one not at all. Would pay more but there is no high end anymore.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after 2 months I used this switch to replace a switch in my garage. It worked fine for 2 months until all of a sudden, I observed a spark within the switch when flipping it up, and the lights would either flicker or not turn on. I replaced it with the original standard switch, and it works fine now. The switch feels cheap when it is flipped. The clear plastic housing, as opposed to a white/almond/ivory housing, also looks odd.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fails in about 3-4 months My second switch failed after 3 months. The first one only lasted 3 months. I thought the first one was a fluke but now realize it is just poor quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dim and upside down The old illuminated white switches that they used to sell were much better. First, in my opinion, the clear doesn't look nearly as nice as the white. Why would you want to see the innards of the switch instead of a nice, plain white switch? Second, one would think perhaps the reason to switch to clear is to get brighter illumination. Not so. My old white switches are much brighter than these. Third, the switch is upside down! That is, when you install it with the lettering facing up so that you can read it, the "off" position is up and the "on" position is down, which is the opposite of how most people expect their single-pole switches to be. It's not the end of the world to just unwire the switch and flip it over, but it's kind of annoying to wire your switch, test it, discover it's upside down, and have to un-wire and re-wire it. Luckily I tested one switch before installing a whole bunch and knew to install the rest upside-down. Please bring back the old white switches!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked for about 4yr The switch is starting to arc when switched after about 4 years. The light output at the switch was great. Just wished it didn't fail so quick. I am only using it on average 3-5 times a week. Going to try the cooper brand next.
