DIY Back Up Light stays on

I just purchased a 2008 Mini S, Six speed, for my 17 year old daughter. The back up light on the right side stays on all the time. No dealer within 100 miles, where do I start? Theories Please, thank you!

Switch is stuck probably, its on the top of the transmission left hand side of the engine compartment, blue yellow wire according to the manual.
Best remove the wires from it for now, although you might get a light bulb not working error come up on the dash for it, and tape them up it so they cant short out, that will stop the light coming on until you have time to check the switch.
