On Board Air Pressure Reg.?

I spent a total of about 2 hours this long weekend working on the jeep. I thought that was all it would require. I am trying to get the onboard Air functional. I am not getting power through the pressure switch. I bought a 120v pressure switch to use on my jeep. If I understand it correctly, all it does is mechanically switch (via air pressure) electrical contacts, correct? Mine has only two wires connected to it, Hot from panel switch, and output to York clutch. Anyone see a problem with that? Tonight, I will check my wiring and make sure I have all fuses in, and all connections hooked up.

P.S. Rain and snow this weekend means the forests and public lands may be accessible very shortly. Got to keep hoping for more weather to put out the fires. Most fires are still going strong.

That's how I have mine hooked up. Works great.

Make sure you're using the correct terminals on the pressure switch. Most have two independent contact sets (i.e. 4 terminal screws).
