Check your PRSOV reverse flow protection and check the 5th stage checkvalve it could be jammed open. It happend before.
Ty to open the start valve cb and then put eng start sw in GND, your APU bleed should rise to 35-40 PSI for MES while startvalve stays close. (you fool the system) If it doesnt continue with T/S on your start switch signal for MES.

Thank You Jean-Paul for advice! Unfortunately or fortunately (depends on the point of view) the related aircraft moved to another station...
