    Switch the hose at the manifold under the v drive and see if it fills, sometimes those valves get blocked and gummed up

    i guess i should of made my problem more clear haha, what my deal is when i hit the switch i get nothing outta the pumps, doesnt turn on either the fill pump when on fill or turn on the empty pump when on empty.. checked fuses by steering wheel and all looked good... i even plugged in the other bags valves to front bag and same problem. i hooked this valve and empty pump up to the other bags and works.. im lost...

    You only have one fill pump.

    If it is running with the other switches, and not the front switch, either the switch or power lead are bad.

    If it runs with the front switch, but doesnt fill, it is the valve.

    These switches have two power input. one for the little light, and one that actually send the power to the pumps/valves. If you're getting the light on , but nothing else happens......i.e. no pump of valve actuation, then my bet is that either that power wire to the back of the switch either came of or it blew it's fuse. You need you pop the switch out and see if both +ve power wires are connected and then trace each one back to their source.

    I thought it was going to be that. Glad that you got it fixed....the drawing helped didn't it...it helped me when I was trying to figure out how this things are wired.

    Troubleshooter step 1: Inspect all wires and connections. Folks don't always understand what this means or why it is so dang important. Glad you're good to go.
