Default All green all the time?!?

Hello all,hope you've been well.Have been running well, a few problems here and there but handled. This is new. A while ago the automatic run-on post turning the truck off stopped working so I've been simply manually shutting off the system and letting the truck run for 1-1.5 mins before turning off the truck. Has worked well.
Last night same thing but this morning the truck had a hard time starting and the green light was on despite being in the off position. Now, no matter which position the toggle switch is in the green light stays on!
Any advise is appreciated.
Next day truck did not start, chugged on then died. Pulled all fuses to disengage fat system but did not work. Substituted the 3-prong over-ride plug for the pressure switch and voila! - truck started. I'm guessing I need a new pressure switch or do I need to look further? In the past couple of years I need to replace a pressure switch annually after the winter season. Is this a common problem with others in colder climates? This wasn't the case originally.
