New or old motor? Inside the motor there is a parking mechanism and contacts. Usually this is the problem. It's been sometime since I've had to diagnose that issue. Your switch is good because the motor is getting juice. Check/clean all connections and grounds while your into it also.

The parking leg of the ground circuit goes through the brass ring in the upper/center of the motor.  Once the switch is turned off, the ground then goes though the motor base, though the brass ring to the grommet metal>bolt>firewall until the parking breaker opens (internal).  Make sure you have a good ground there.
