Default Need wiring help

Please help before I pull out what little hair I have left
I am trying to wire a circuit that goes from ac adapter/charger to a nimh 12v, 10AA battery pack to a switch and led light then to a Sure 2024 amp. I have spent hrs. trying to get it right but there is something that is escaping me. A simple diagram would be so much appreciated.

Thanks!

You trying to power the amp through the LED?

Battery '-' to '-' or 'ground' (earth) terminal AND the 'cathode' (look it up) of the LED. '+' terminal of battery to one terminal of the switch. Second terminal of the switch to '+' or 'power' on the amp AND a resistor of at least 1000 ohms. Other terminal of the resistor connects to the 'anode' of the LED. More then 2 terminals on the switch? Either get a 2 pin switch or figure out which 2 to use.

Presto. Get some Rogaine to grow back the hair and enjoy the amp.

Thanks Stratus
I think I have completed the wiring as per your instructions. Please look at the diagram and tell me if I have it right.
There a 2 problems-
1- the voltage at the amp is only around 9v although the supply is supposed to be 12v
2- it doesn't work at all off the battery even though the green light is on on the charger

Thanks for you help. I've got it all sorted out and working after swapping out the nihm battery pack and replacing it with a lion pack. Works great
