Another round of name that part.

Taking my tranny out I found this burnt plug zip tied up under the floor panel.

One way to tell for sure. Short the 2 wires together and see what lights. I think Mikes right.

Get yourself a schematic (Hayes, Chiltons, etc.) and play the "follow the diagrams" game until you can identify the wire colors and plug. Personally, if I were running without something like that for a long time and everything seemed fine, I'd just let it be; but I'm no professional mechanic....

The backup lamp switch wire colors would be yellow w/trace and brown w/trace. Clean up those wires and check the colors.

You can download the FSM for your '87 and it has the schematics in it. That's where I got those colors.

thats an auto? maybe its the neutral safety switch? do you have a stock solenoid on the jeep? the neutral safety switch hooks to the third pole on the stock solenoid, the bottom pole. if you have a two pole solenoid and a spare plug hanging by the solenoid, that is probably what it is

My backup lights work. Thanks for the link que I have a Haynes manual my little girl likes to color in it. I have found that's about all it's good for. I'll trace it out when I get back home but I've been thinking about it all morning and I've never had a 4wd light. PO installed a posi lock cable on the CAD but did a real crappy job. I think he used a bicycle brake line and didn't even seal the cover up. That's next on my list after this slave conversion.

I think my Haynes manual is my favourite book of all!

Funny you should say 4wd light That was my first post. Search the pdf by wire color or the forum. I am pretty sure it comes up too.

Depends on the year.

Early model it's a vacuum switch. Some time in the early 90's they switched it to electric on the CAD.
