try to adjust the switch ,it is easy you just rotate it untill the lights come on steady on way or the other. as stated above you need the vacuum ball for your vent system to work bit you can relocate it

the base of the switch locks into the column tube and has a finger that goes into the shift tube. the electrical portion of the switch is adjustable.just reach up and grab it by the top portion and try pushing upward first you will feel it ratcheting .with the key on and in reverse( engine off and p brake set) adjust it until the lights are on steady. make sure they go off in other gears
