[V8] Automatic Transmission Multi-Function Switch

Hey, a new Wiki page. :)


It shows the widget that was opened up and where connections were
soldered to fool the ECU into thinking the automatic is in neutral,
so my converted-to-a-5-speed can start.

I'm trying to figure out a few things:

a) If I can clean up this mess and open up the sheath of wires and make a
cleaner kludge -- that is, find the correct wires and use a but connector
to join them, thereby get rid of the MFS,cleaning up the engine bay.

b) I hope to find a blue? wire in that bundle of wires, and confirm that
giving it 12V will light up the backup lights. I can then tie the backup
switch on the 5-speed transmission to that blue wire, and make my backup
lights work.

c) I'd like to determine where that bundle of wires leads, to cut
them back as far as I can to clean up the engine bay.

My V8 has a lowered suspension, so I can't really see underneath.
And the apartment complex here has a rule about not working on
cars in the parking lot, so jacking up the car would be problematic.
