Tried to wire up some led lights in the cup holders. They are wired in a series starting from the battery back around towards the drivers seat then into the Aux switch. Then to the bow and around. When I the switch off the ones in the back come on. When I turn the switch on they are all off. Need help

The LEDs need to be wired in parallel.

why go from the bat to the aux switch? The aux switch should already have a power source. when i did my led's i ran them with 18ga wire from switch to driver side gunwale then back around the bow to the observer side gunwale. i joined into the wire at the cupholders in the bow, under the drivers dash and in the observers cabin.

X's 2 wire in parallel. positive to positive and negative to negative. Wire it this way all the way down the line.
