AC condensing unit problem

I took the condensing unit apart and follow the 24V blue wire inside the unit. As you can see on this picture:

the blue 24V first goes into the "red thing" (don't know what it is) and then it goes into the green thing. When it comes out, there is no voltage on the wire. There is voltage (27V) when it comes out of the red and changes from blue to yellow wire but no voltage coming out from the green thing.
What is the red and green ? how can I replace it as it seems to be permanently attached to the pipe?
The yellow wire that comes out of the green goes to T1 on the electronic board:

Why did you take it apart-- was the system working? If not, what were the symptoms?

1. First shut down the 24v power to the condensing unit. 2. Cut the wires going to # 2 pressure switch about 6" to 8" from the switch and tie them together to bypass the switch. 3. Turn power back on and see if it works then turn back off. 4. If it does then find why the switch was blocking power. Could the switch be defective or has it sensed defective pressures? 5. If you are not sure what to do then find a HVAC person that knows what they are doing so you don't do anymore damage to your A/C.

I eliminated the pressure switch #2 and it did work. 1. Can I run the system without the switch for now? 2. Are the switches replaceable as it seems to be installed there permanently (from what I can tell). 3. As Moe mentioned, could there be a defective pressure the would not let the voltage through the switch?
Thanks, Jack
