You can check it with an ohmmeter. All the terminals should have continuity with each other. Don't forget to de-pressurize the brake system first ( pump pedal at least 10 times ). Also it would be worth it to unplug the connector to the pump motor along with the pressure switch connector while checking this. HTH.......Ken

ok my pressure switch has been leaking recently. Could it be the o-ring or the switch? Can I take that hex shaped silver nut out to check the o-ring?

What color is it? I believe the black switches have been superceded to a gray switch in a GM Campaign. I might have the color wrong, but you might have the defective switch. I cant go outside and look, I got vacuum brakes now :)
