Default 1996 F250 v3 electronic issues

Bought a system from Jason in 2007 for a 1996 Ford. Have had good luck with it except for the pressure switch since the purchase. Recently while driving I smelled burning wires and finally located it to the
V3 brain. Turned the system off and it appears to be a switch that had gotten hot. I will try to attach pics. Any advice on where to purchase as new switch or other advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Default may not be a V3

I checked the past emails from the purchase and it was purchased in 2007 and it is a 1996 F250. I listed a V3 without thinking.

The photos seem to display a burnt relay. (small photos) Are you calling a relay a switch?? If it is the relay you need to inspect the wires on the plug in going to the relay and the wire from the fuse to the relay on the board. Repair those and replace the relay...or call me and get an SSB with new wiring and main harness.I have them in stock. Same day shipping. Dave

Default relay or switch

Az thanks for the reply. I called it a switch without any better term to use. Do you have the relays in stock?
Thanks.

Yes Call me in the morning. Also the relay next to it is the heater jacket relay. You can just swap them to see if that fixes it.

Default Yes it did

Dave the pictures came through, thanks. Local folks cannot replace the housing/wiring. Probably could the relay. In looking at your part, it appears to have 5 wires and mine 9. Thoughts?
