Guess the connector ?

This is the last connector that I cant figure out. 1978 CJ7. under dash near steering column. Colors are two red solid and a white w tracer.
I also have three wires comming out of the harness together with the flat single connectors (orange,yellow black) . Any help would be great.

It is the connector for the backup lights with automatic transmission.

Sounds right. It slides over 2 flat topped posts that stick out, perpendicular to them, as opposed to a spade terminal that slides together parallel.

Not exactly,
It plugs into the back of the PRNDL switch on the steering column. Normal spade terminals.

There is also a NSS connector (Two Blue wires) with jumper installed for manual tranny

And a Kick down switch (two Yellow Wires)

Oh, my bust. It looked like one of those that slide over 2 contact posts. Not sure what they're called but they're like a cylindrical tee post where the top of the tee contacts the side of a spade.

Thanks guys, It hit me last night as I was looking at the diagram. I have the manual trans and this plug is unused.

Your correct in that it's used on the "T" connectors in other places. One plug for multple uses.

I believe those "T" connectors are commonly referred to as "nail head" connectors

Okay, now it makes sense. The 'ol multiple use option.

still confused

So if I have a manual trans do I jumper the REDRED/White connector. The switch on the trans has two white wires on it. As it is now my backup lights do not come on when I shift into reverse. They do blink with the turn signal and I do not think that is correct?
