So without a wiring diagram or knowing what kinda switch it is. I am guessing here but try to switch the two black wires around.

The neon light with its series resistor has be to be wired across the load. It seems to be wired across the source.

The third option is to wire it across the switch contacts, so it will be on when the switch is open and off when the switch is closed.

Hi thanks for the replys, had the switch wired red to both the Live terminals and black to both the Negative, have now changed the black wires over to opposite Negatives but the neon still stays on if the switch is in the off or on position. Any other suggestions please.

Post of a photo of the back of the switchplate. I'm curious whether the indicator light has its own set of wires (6 wires total to be hooked up) or they go into the switch (4 wires total to be hooked up).

Your link is a bit short on details. Usually they give you a schematic with wire colors, etc.
