1996 993 C4S Backup lights always on!

1996 C4S 6-spd. I have just noticed that my backup lights are always on, from as soon as the key is turned to the "on" position...even before engaging the starter. Two weeks ago I had a seeping backup light switch replaced at Scottsdale Porsche and everything has been fine. Granted, I had not been driving much at night, however, I do know for certain that I have approached the vehicle from the rear with the engine runing, so I certainly would have noticed the lights being on. Everything concerning the transmission feels fine otherwise. Please advise. Thanks, JosephJoel, as a follow up to my recently submitted question: This morning I fired her up and there were no backup lights on...hmm...I drove the 15 minutes to work and got out at nearby gas station and checked before shutting her down to find that the lights were now illuminated...hmmm. I shut her down, conducted my business then fired her lights. Drove the final 2 minutes to work and the lights were back on. Your thoughts? Thanks, Joseph
