Well I checked the switch with an ohm meter and opens and closes just fine, the tps that I got was for a 98 e350 so that might be y, the one it shows for my truck isn't the one that goes on it. It's a female plug and mines a male plug.

What a little ***** lol! My dad had a ground hog chew through the fuel lines under his cadillac. Put it on the lift and there were bite marks all over the underside. Apparently It liked the taste of undercoating lol.

Yeh tell me about it. I felt like a retard when I saw it. I've been checking all on the inside the whole time.

I did, I've already fixed it. Had to splice all the wires that were chewed thru and then it worked!
