Red reverse light flashing when going in foward gear

Hi all I am new here this is my first post. I have a 2006 Rhino 660 and the red reverse light on the dash panel lights solid red when in reverse gear like it it supposed to. When I put it in foward gear and start moving foward I will go about 200 feet and the red reverse starts blinking on and off as I drive foward. Has anyone else had this problem and know what is causing it or how to fix it.

Thanks

Jerry

the switch located on top of the motor assy just under the aircleaner box has a (green wire with a white tracer) is engenieered to be normally closed grounding the circuit. when the tranny goes into reverse the grounf lifts. and the light goes on.
The problem with this araingment is if you loose conection anywhere between the relay and the switch, it trips the light.

The easy fix is to simply ground the wire. but then you got no indicator. if thats not to your liking ,you can can follow the wire back up stream and remove the conector solder it and shrink wrap it then clean the conections at the switch real good and use some dielectric greese. see if that fixes it.
if not you may need a switch. lot of switches get replaced first. but it's best to do the clean up before you go changing parts.

Thanks for the reply Joe I'll give that a try before I replace the switch.

Again thanks
