ARB Wiring with SPod

I've wired an ARB large compressor to an SPod using the ARB adapter and can't get it to power on. Ive hard wired the main part of the harness directly to the Battery and fuses are good. I've checked power at all of the circled locations below and they all have 12.5 when switch is turned. Any ideas short of replacing it?

Was the polarity correct going into the compressor?

Is the jeep running when you turn the switch on? With the current draw of the compressor and the low power sensor on the SPod, it trips the SPod low voltage circuit and prevents anything turning on on the SPod. Try starting the jeep and then flip the switch.

Polarity was correct. Not sure on the pressure switch. I've changed the red and blue cables to test.

Nothing when running. If the SPod was tripped would I see 12.5 at the location in the first pic?

If it was tripped then you would have no power at the terminals.

I beginning to think I somehow have a bad pressure switch. The 2 cables that connect to it have 12.5 volts but when I connect them to the switch I get nothing. There's just enough room to connect a volt meter when the terminals are connected to the pressure switch at the top and I'm seeing ZERO.

Jump the 2 wires, if comes on then it's a bad switch

This is now fixed.

I removed the 3 bolts on the side of the compressor and removed the side. It has 2 blocks that are on springs that were stuck open. Put them in place and everything works correctly now.
