    I know this might be a long shot but I was wondering if any one would know where this wire might plug into. This wire is not connected to anything on my truck and is hangin down on the passenger's side of the transmission. I attached a picture but it is kinda hard to see because of the flash.

    have you traced that wire to see where it goes? i know the wire for the front o2 sensor goes to a identical connector on top of the transmission.

    I haven't traced it yet. I will try tomorrow. Under the truck it goes into a harness with a couple other wires.

    If this wire is the one that goes to on top of the transmission, is it possible to plug it back in without dropping the transmission?

    When's the last time you used the 4x4? That looks like it might be the position switch. wire. An O2 plug has 4 pins.

    I am just now getting the truck on the road. I got it from my brother who said the 4 wheel drive never worked. I am trying to see if I can get the plug to go where it needs to be but not sure what it does. So in short, I never used the 4wd and I don't know much about these trucks.

    I printed out the first diagram you posted. If I understand correctly it is labeled 4wd Postion Switch Connector in that diagram?

    One other thing when I try moving the stick from 2H to 4H it doesn't seem to want to go down into the 4h position. I pull it out of 2H and try to go stright down with it to 4H but just doesn't go in. The other positions seem to kinda click when it goes in but 4H does not. Any ideas?

    I checked it out and the 4WD Position Switch Connecter seems to be connected.
    This connector, the one I am trying to find out where it goes from the pic i posted, would never reach that far back to the back of the transmission. It only will reach to around the area of the 4x4 shift lever. It is strange because I looked all over and there just doesn't seem to be a place to connect it.
