45lbs on the low side, yes the switch has 12 volts checked with a meter and then a test light. Jumpered clutch by running a secondary positive, to the positive on the pump, but using the original ground to rule that out, according blows cold with clutch engaged.

ok, first there should only be 5 volts on the switch if you looked at the diagram I sent you. ir you applied 12 volts at that point, you damaged the control head.

can you verify the power again at the switch

Sorry ,if typed wrong, but let me start over. The actual has a full charge and works great with clutch jumpered directly to the battery. I checked for voltage at the low pressure switch with test light. Lights up, I just realized checked for voltage and it's 4.8 at one terminal 5.1 at the other, last one is ground. Where it may have gotten mixed up ,I check the ground to the positive on the batter, that's why I got 12 . I did not put any voltage to the switch, just to the clutch

for some reason my phone keeps changing ac to actual. Sorry
Expert:  roybelding replied 6 months ago.

ok, thanks. check the signal wire for voltage with the switch hooked up to see if it is sending a signal to the control head
