A 4-position slide or rotary switch should work if it can handle the current.

Dear I have 4 position slide switch but I don't know how to wire this switch
Not every switch has the same pinout. Show us the pinout or a link to the datasheet.

I'm sorry, I may not have expressed myself clearly: By pinout I meant not a photo but the logical assignment of the pins, see e.g. this example.

Hello,

Without the exact details of the switch it is not possible to give you a wiring diagram.
There are many configurations of slide switches.

looks like to me its disconnecting the 5 different locations in your circuit, one on at a time, and u have one off position. should try that see if it works, just hook it up to a battery resistor and led and u should see.

looks like it only disconnects one side of the battery, and the other stays connected. (since its a mutex selector... only 1 on at a time. designates only a certain use. )

also one could call it a 1 hot switch, and I wouldnt disagree with the termage. funny if I'm wrong tho, I only am just looking at the picture provided.
;)
