If the switch were faulty, then leaving the metering plate switch unplugged at all times (thus the pumps would run independent of the switch, anytime the ignition was turn to ON) would take the switch out of the equation. But the arm must deflect as air is drawn across the plate in order for fuel to flow to the injectors.
