... confirmed this on the wiring diagram last night ... the wire that goes to the back-up light switch on the tranny comes from the fuse box but is in fact unfused.  It is connected to 12v which is switched by the ignition, so all you should need to do is to turn on the ignition to make smoke ... 

Looks like another thing to add to the car while I'm checking out the electrical system ... this circuit also goes to the fuel pump relay ...
