The switch may not be functional, or may not be rest correctly. If the vehicle was in an accident, the fuel pump or wires might have been damaged. this could cause the switch to retrip.

AnswerI'm sure it is, as when i put it to wrong position the light is on all the time, if i put it into right position the light is on only when I'm starting, and the engine is cranking. Any idea what else might be causing this?
