Default Auto gear selector lights ...Asking for a friend.

My best mate after about 18 years of me owning 75's caught the disease last month and bought himself a MK2 connie diesel auto and we are working through some of it's little issues. Today he called in for a coffee and showed me a new fault that's occurred. It doesn't cause any problems but when stationary if he moves the lever through the positions, if he selects 4 the red lights for 2 and 4 light up and if 1 is selected 1 and 3 come on. Both times the position indicator on the dash goes blank. P R N and D are normal. Before we strip the surround off, anyone had this issue ?

I'm trying to persuade him to joint us but has a fear of the internet !!!

SOMETIMES these little glitches are cured by a battery reset.

Neg cable off for 20 minutes. (it has helped some folk. Maybe just maybe.---)

I'll give that a go if the switch checks out.
