green wire to transmission
« on: 14 May 2020, 01:51 PM »
While removing my transmission there was a green wire that I missed.  Of course it snapped.  Now I'm trying to fix it but for the life of me I can't find where it went under the car.  Anybody know?  Thanks,

Great minds think alike.  After poking around more I had the same idea.  I don't know what the thing it went to on the trans and there was nothing dangling in the trans tunnel.  But....  I noticed one of those pass-through grommets with nothing coming out.  I pulled it out and on the inside was the other end of the wire between the hump and the console.  I bet it is the kick-down switch.  Well, at least messing with the console is easier than pulling the engine.  Which, BTW, I got back in today.  Hallelujah!!  Best,
