Yes but I would use a relay also because it would probably be to much current load(60amp) for just a toggle switch.Relay has switch side and a coil side,when coil side is energized it closes the switch side so current will flow thru it. I would wire the relay switch side to the yellow wire of igntion switch(trace it back to before the splice)because it has 3 connections on the switch itself. Then hook the coil side of the relay to a power source and use the toggle switch in between the coil ground side of relay and ground.
