Shower sump pump failure

We have a Beneteau 40, 2008, we discovered after in water storage this winter that our shower sump pump did not work. The manual override switch does turn the pump on (a Whale Gulper 220) so we assumed it was the float switch a (tank sensor) a rather exotic device that we ordered from Beneteau. We got the part and hooked it up and still the pump will not turn on. We tried jumping the terminal from the float switch, to no avail. Now we think it may be the chip itself which is encased in a plastic box a SCHEIBER ref.36.16112.00 COMMAND DE POMPE 12V POUR BAC A DOUCHE (photo attached), before we order yet another part, does anyone have any ideas as to what may be going on here. thanks.
