Jack down sensor

Any of you gurus have a how to on verifying my rear jacks down sensors are bad, or the problem is something other?

This is one of the rear jacks in question. It seems like the sensors are bad on both rear jacks.

Do you have the fluid tank full of fluid with all jacks retracted?
The fluid will be between the two lines on the bell vent shaft with all jacks retracted.
If the jack down alarm comes on when going over a bump the spring maybe becoming weak and need replacement.
Here is some related info if you need it in future.

The jacks down alarm sounds and the red LEDs for the rear jacks is always on. Even with the jacks up.

Fluid is full. Alarm is continuous. Springs on the right rear are new. Temporarily I have unplugged the sensors on both rear jacks until I can be sure of the cause and order the correct parts.

Yes, it is always on if the system is on. Or the key is on.

I have the 200 series controller. 2 plates. One with the off/on button and the LEDs. The other with the three joysticks.
