I had one like this once and there was trouble with the connector. Have a friend keep keying up and shutting off to verify the start up 1-2 sec interval. Then you go with your test light or voltmeter, verify power and ground, an what one is the sender. If you have loose fitting tubes in the connector it can come and go by moving it around perhaps. Has to fit snug at each wire to pass current.
