    Can someone show/tell me where the light for the floor shifter connects to the wording harness? The car is a 76 Stalion .

    Thanks, Chuck

    Was the car originally column shift? If so, I used the blue wire in the steering column that was for the gear indicator.

    A blue wire with red stripe controls all the dash illumination, radio, shift indicator etc.

    I'm not 100% but I believe some years ran wires for neutral safety sw, backup & floor shifter light through firewall, down to trans tunnel then to shifter. Orig shifter switch has bulb socket and all wires mentioned above in it's connector.
