  • Avanti manual shifter wiring question -two plugs?

    I am now at the point where I need to hook up the backup lights, but I
    dont know which plugs is which. I am assuming that the plastic plug
    is for a reverse/neutral safety switch, and the black two prong (like
    the turn signal pigtails) plug is for the backups. Ideas?

    Someone stuck a short wire into the plastic plug to permanently connect
    the two together .. which is why I assume its for a starter control.

    The one that was looped is probably the plug for the neutral safety switch, for the starter control. Those wires are white with a red tracer. It's looped on cars with manual transmissions.
    The other one is for backup lights.

      Thanks Mike .. thats what I thought. Cool. Now I need a plug to plug
      into the stock connector and into the side of the TKO.
