Sounds like the switch may be gummed up and sticking closed. Easy enough to unthread from the side of the tail housing and have a look. I think it's a 19mm hex.

The plunger on the switch rides against the reverse shift rod. The rod has a low spot machined into it. The switch plunger extends as it drops into the low section when shifted into reverse and the switch closes. Hard to stick in an on position, more likely to stick in the off position.


The two wires may simply be touching each other completing the circuit.
