i dont think that will have anything to do with it cuz the switch will just keep the truck from starting. you said you had an auto when that was doing that to you right

Did you bench bleed the new master? You are supposed to.

You need to get the slave and the bleeder on it higher than the master so the air will work its way out. It will also help to bench bleed the master. They can be very hard to bleed.
