Gear position indicator on 84 GL1200 Standard

The Neutral Indicator Light comes on when I'm in 3rd gear... Any Suggestions on how to remedy this issue?

All of a sudden or after there was work done to the bike.?
Does it light when in neutral?

I actually should have done more research... The guy I bought it from told me the water pump was new... Now that I think about it the gear position switch is probably out of sync... I'll live with it until I have to replace the water pump again... thanks for the reply though... Sometimes my lazy over rules my brains... lolol... I am loving this old bike.

The answer is always in the details and history.
You figured it out.
It is annoying to always have to use the clutch tho.
