Ok, I understand the confusion. Yes, there's a "jumper harness" that goes from the bullet connectors under the dash and ends at about the shifter. This harness, has 2 wires in it. The shift selector light gets plugged into one, the rear console light harness into the other. I understand where you guys are comming from, as the 2 wires are together, but they're 2 distinct wires, though, on different circuits.
In other words, we are ALL right
