Hello and welcome to Just Answer

1st check the connection to the pressure switch is bright and clean and check back along the switch wiring for any signs of damage to the insulation

As if the wire is grounded out at any point then this will also turn on the light.

also check that the engine ground wire is secure and corrosion free at both ends

as if the earth is bad this will give all sort of electrical issues
