B1240 Mercury DescriptionThe Body Control Module (BCM) uses a Field Effect Transistor (FET) as circuit protection for the start/stop switch indicator and as an electronic switch to turn the start/stop switch indicator on and off. The FET receives fused battery voltage from BCM. When the start/stop switch is pressed a voltage and ground signal are sent to the BCM. When the vehicle enters RUN or START mode, the BCM forward biases the FET which provides voltage to the amber LED in the start/stop switch, illuminating the word ENGINE.
