I want to power some accessories in my car using illuminated switches on the dashboard. These switches will be wired to the dash illumination circuit, which is normally 12V but can drop as low as 6V when fully dimmed. Can I use a 6V relay here to give 12V power to the accessories? According to this data sheet, it’s max switching voltage is 16V so I think this should be safe.
