Got a 70 Chevelle, original big block 4 speed car. Backup lights always on. What are the most likely causes & where to look? Thanks.

Found the switch is attached to the steering column near the floor. Replaced it & the lights are still on all the time?

That is your neutral lock out switch. If it was bad the car would not start. The other switch mentions is somewhere else. I don't know where. Just reread post and yours is a 4 speed so the switch on the column is usually for a automatic.

No, the switch on the column is for both automatic & manuals.
