    Welcome to the forum.

    I would assume it's a fault with the reversing switch in the gearbox.

    what engine? manual or auto?

    my first port of call would be to find the reverse light switch and unplug it. if the light goes off its the switch or whatever presses it in the box.
    unscrew the switch and check it with the multimeter. make sure its making and breaking the circuit.

    im not sure off hand where the switch is on an auto.
    manual one will be a two pin one somewhere on the box probably on the n/s i think?
