The port that feeds the switch must be plugged.

Yep, kinda sounds like lack of brake fluid flow is not activating the pressure switch...brake line could be removed to drain fluid and clean out port then remove contamination without removing from the chassis...or possibly rig up line from switch port that drains back into reservoir for quick check of fluid flow after poking that port with a drill bit by hand then flushing master cylinder before re-attaching brake line...there are several ways to skin a cat here...

FYI
