Post KLDE transmission sensors
So I recently did a KLDE swap to my GS. the only problem I have is figuring out where the transmission sensors plug up? I basically have everything working except my reverse lights and speedo...not sure if that would be the same sensor, but theres no where I can see on the MX3 harness to hook them up to

You didn't keep your Mx-3 trans? What trans did you put in?

You need to use your speedo sensor from your MX-3 transmission. You might have a later year transmission which uses a different speedo sensor.

The reverse lights and the neutral safety switch look similar. One bolts on the front of the transmission near the oil fill plug, and the other is on the rear of the trans where the passenger halfshaft goes in the trans.

Correctly referenced as the neutral switch. Neutral safety switch is on the automatic trans. :D

Here is the trans and the itemized index is on the next page. Good luck

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Appears dan forgot to add the links. If you have not found what you needed in the service manuals then the links below should help.

Diagram of transmission showing location of the neutral switch and back up light switch:
link to transmission diagram
Neutral switch trouble shooting and possibly a better diagram in service manual section F:
link to neutral switch
For the location and diagram of the speed sensor:

Don't forget the washer for the reverse switch.
