being bypassed, the LO PS terminal signal is not ignored during
the 90-second start-up period.

NOTES:
Because the pressure switches are monitored only when "Y1"
(Input) is active, the code for pressure switch open will not be
seen when "Y1" is off. Instead, the "Normal Operation" or
"Short Cycle Lockout" code will be seen.
When a pressure switch opens and causes a short cycle
lockout, the pressure switch-open code will be seen until it
closes, then the short cycle lockout code will flash unless it
has already expired.
