There is a low pressure switch that may be the cause of it not engaging ... did you have a problem before doing anything?

I'm not sure where that is on my Toyota. Do you know? I am trying to check my relays as we speak.. Thanks for your response1 Ken


Here's a great video ... this will show you what to look for and how it works ... you don't have a High cutoff ... just a low but it will look the same
