Yeah, I took that as a joke, at least I was grinning as I read it

I do have a FSM wiring diagram for a 78 though, but it would still have the D20 wiring.

There is no connection for the D20 tcase.

However, how much of a drawing do you want for the D300? I used the 84 setup in mine. you can follow that or just freelance it.

It seems kind of interesting, I have the same indicator on my 1980 CJ5 (EMGCY DRIVE). Except that it comes on whenever the dash lights are on, as though it were part of that circuit. On the other hand, I just took apart the multi-gauge from my 1980 parts CJ5 and that position says 4-WHEEL DRIVE. I'm not surprised that the wiring for mine is messed up, it's just the next in a long line of issues I've had. Great info John and lucdog, thanks. Now I've got something to do while I wait for fuel gauge parts to arrive.

it's real easy to plug in a speedometer illumination bulb in the wrong spot and the emergency drive indicator will be on all the time.

Another interesting use for the light, if you don't have another need for it, is to run a wire from your electric radiator fan so it illuminates when it is running.
