Remote switchs for water pump

I have a 12 volt water pump controlled at 3 locations by momentary spring loaded switches. At each switch location, the green light now stays lit, regardless if the pump is on or not. It just started doing this, as the light used to cycle off at all locations with the pump power off. I am looking for suggestions as to why the signal light stays lit all the time, even when the pump is powered off.

In addition, any thoughts on where the pump switch controller may be located? I have a 2007 Newmar on a Workhorse chassis. Thanks!

Contact Newmar for location of the pump controller and check to see if the light circuit is bad on the controller back to the switches. Replace if necessary.

Thanks everyone for your helpful advice. Here is the final on this project.

I located the Controller in the wet bay, up high on the wall. Cleaned all 4 connectors and the ground. No improvement with indicator light staying on all the time.

Replaced the Intellitic 10 amp Latching Controller 00-00145-100. All is working properly once again with my water pump switch indicator lights.

George.....You would be wise to buy a spare controller and keep it on hand. In an emergency, the hot lead from the pump is connected to a constant 12 volt. The ground lead is what is controlled by the controller. If you have a controller quit, just move the ground lead to a ground in your bay to get the pump running again.
