Re: [Chrysler300] 62 300 back up light always on

While I do not know about 62 specifically the 60-61 have a rather flimsy switch on the side of the push button assembly . The R button flips it . It may be malfunctioning . Later they went to a 3 wire switch on the later 727 transmission ( other wire is the neutral safety) . But parts inside the trans  changed too for that 3 wire switch The earlier
 one in same position has one wire , the neutral safety only . So most likely nothing  to do with trans , ---the reason I cannot be sure is 62 is first year of 727 . But I believe it still had a one wire neutral safety .
The switch on the push buttons is similar to a radio on off switch, not sure if  normally serviced separately as it is riveted  into the push button mechanism  ; maybe others know if available somewhere ,
Easiest might be get new push button assembly from junk yard , or take a look at it why not working . Maybe bent or something?

Hello - My name is Nigel Wright - a brand new member.  I have 62 300 sport convertible with automatic, that I am about to get back from 6 months getting painted etc.  Upon assembly, they found that the back up lights were always on, independent of what gear the car was in.  The shop is a little puzzled as to the source of the problem -  is this most likely something in the transmission or in the push button assembly.  
Thanks, Nigel
