Hi, perhaps someone can shed some light to this one. The landing gear light that shows that the gear is "unsafe"on my 1979 Turbo Arrow stays on when I retract it.

The meachanic changed something a rubber seal on a sensor under the rear sit but but the light it's still on. The mechanic suggested that I tried to retract the gear in different speeds but still the same, if I overide the automatic gear extension it works fine.

Last week I even did a test flight and the mechanic and the tower confirmed from the ground that gear looked like it was up. Any ideas?? I am at the point where I want to disable the automatic gear extension.
