Caterpillar DP50:
Glow plug relay/ light coming on in reverse

Cat DP50/ 6CM10792
Greetings all. I just finished another repair on this machine and noticed the glow plug light comes on when you shift to reverse, and most of the time in forward as well. I pull cover on dash as well as sheet metal beneath looking for any chaffed wiring etc., all looks well. If I shake the NS switch by hand it usually makes the light come on as well. Has anyone heard of this?
I've disconnected the wire to the glow plugs so they don't stay on and get damaged.
