Rear Tank not pumping?!?

Has anyone had this happen.... My new rear tank/pump decided this week not to pump. So while I throw the switch from front to back, and the gauge reads the rear tank, it STILL pumps from the front. Any ideas?
Thanks!

So here's what happened... I removed the switch to find heat distortion due to voltage of the large diameter wires. This pushed back the connectors for the fuel switch, but not the level transmitters.

So I replaced teh switch and now all is well.

Ah - so I thought, but I was wrong. Just think... New tank and LP pump (they both were rotted, so they had to be replaced), new switch and fuse. Still doesn't work. There has to be a relay someplace! I'll find it!
