    Nothing was plugged into it, anyone know what it does? I know it's not the reverse light switch.

    I've looked through my manual and it doesn't say anything about it.

    The wires on my BJ42 transfer case were for the 4WD light on the dash.

    There's supposed to be something called a "shift point switch" that's part of the spark control system. One of the things that affects advance when the transmission's in high gear. ??
