  Yeah, you're supposed to buy one of those Quaiffe 6 speeds for it!
Sounds like the backup light switch has the "5th gear contact" not 
working right.  Gee, it's usually the reverse light part that fails first!  
Might be able to pull it and dink with it but usually takes replacement, 
at least with the reverse lights...
