96 Shifter Wiring

Just a couple notes about re-wiring the 96 floor shifter to work with aftermarket shifters.

Yellow and Purple are the Neutral Safety Switch.
Orange/Black and Black/White control the Trunk Release
Pink and Green control the Backup Lights.


The Neutral Safety Switch on the Cheeta Shifter is properly wired. This prevents accidentally trying to start the car when it is in gear. For now the Trunk Release works. When I get a round to it I’ll rewire into the Neutral Safety Switch to prevent accidentally opening the trunk at 108 MPH.

That leaves me to contemplate the Backup Lights. The shifter doesn’t have a reverse switch, so I’ll have to fab something up this fall.
