Red face 68 RS Doors open but dont close

I have about given up on this one.
I have checked everything as far as I know to check, and refered to assembly manuel. Installed new check valve, and filter.
As soon as you tun the car on, the doors open.
They do not close. I removed the T fitting,and installed the check valve but, they still do NOT close. They work real slow with the check valve, so I just put the T fitting back in so they would open a little faster. What gives on this?
I guess I need to replace the headlight switch?

Re: 68 RS Doors open but dont close

I have a problem with though as the diagram shows the canister tank only having one opening, when it in fact has two openings instead of one. Anyone?

Hoses are on backwards at the light switch.

I did like the diagram, capped off the extra opening on the tank, and still no change. Doors stay open as soon as car starts.

Ok mark.
Ill check that. In fact, Ive got to get up in there anyway, ill just replace the switch when I'm at it, and reverse the hose too.
