PM 46 air pressure error

the main air hose coming off the compressor T on the ops side developed a pinhole. I spliced and inserted a double male line patch until my new hose arrives from Germany. The pressure now reads in the green on the gauge but the console controls still wont light up and the error lightning bolt is still flashing. If I go to special functions and engage the forms water units and washup attachment everything engages and disengages normally. The compressor runs constantly and when I shut off power to the press the relief valve on the holding tank doesnt engage to drain air. Any thoughts on a solution?

there might be leaking somewhere if compressor keeps working, open side pannel to check the red tank

I had a very similar issue about two years ago. I think ours ended up being on the non operator side there are a bunch of small air hoses near the top that actuate the rollers. Take that panel off and see if you can feel any air leaking over there. Also check that you are not leaking anything out of the blowout valve, we've had problems with that solenoid that a bunch of times.
