It connects to the side of the transmission and powers the backup lights, I think.

Judging by your profile info, I'd say it's for the "4wd engaged" light on the dash.

I believe that goes on the drivers side. Should see the 2 pronged connector sticking out from case.

that is the 4wheel drive dash light wire. it does not connect to the transmission it connects to the transfer case on the passenger side (assuming you have a dana 300 transfer case). the back up light connector is a 2 wire connector that is on the tranny on the driver side (assuming you have a t4/t5 tranny)

after looking again closer at the picture i see i was mistaken. that IS the 2wire back up light connector. sorry. it is possible that the connections on the switch have broken off but it is on the driver side.

i do have a t-5 and plugged it in. I read that the quadra trac was the only jc7 that had a 4x4 light. Does that mean i dont have the original speedo cluster and if so why is the 4x4 light on

4x4 light will stay on if the sender is bad, it's in 4WD, or in my case the PO pinched the wire between the block and bell housing and grounded it out.

Jeeps with the dana 300 had a "4-Wheel Drive" light I think the Quadratec had "Emergency Drive."
Never had one that said "4X4"



Those whith a Dana 20 didn't have either. although the light was always there, just not connected.

I looked under the dash. The wire going to the 4x4 light that is staying on is orange. The one going to the emergency break light has 2 wiser one black one read. Question are they in the correct location.

The "pigtail" connecting the backup lights to my T-150 transmission broke off. Any reason I shouldn't be able to strip the wires back half an inch or so, slip a heat-shrink female adapter on each, and then use brush on electrical tape to seal things up nice?
Thanks!

Red and black on the brake warning lamp is correct.

The 4WD indicator lamp should be orange and red. The red is a power feed and the orange goes down to the transfer box through the bulkhead connector to ground.

If you ONLY have an orange wire and it is live you probbaly have it wired to the dash panel lamps which confusingly also have an orange wire.

I've never tried brush-on-tape but that's the general idea to make it work.
