unfortunatly el gearbox loom is part of the engine bay loom, it doesnt unplug like ed/ef..

best thing is to loop back/bridge the 2 inhibutor wires in the 4 pin white plug that normally goes to the inhibutor/gear position switch on the auto, and run 2 wires from the manual reverse switch to the other 2 wires in the same white plug..
you just need to find what wires are inhibutor/starter and reverse wires in that plug



still having abit of trubble with the wiring. what do you mean by loop back/bridge 2 of the wires on the 4 pin plug?

and if i only run 2 wires from the gear box wich are the reverse lights back to the 4 pin plug what do i do with the other 2 wires from the gear box?


if you can help explain would be great, otherwise ill try work it out my self haha, thanks


the other 2 wires that are to be bridged/joined together are the inhibutor switch wires, these are there so the auto dont start in gear.. once unpluged the starter curcuit is broken stoping the engine from cranking over,

i wish you sent me that manual conversion guide when i first started, would of been alot of help haha. i dont think you can disconnect the gear box loom from the el like you can in the eb ed and ef's. iv got speedo to work and all that but still no reverse lights................... but car is on the road so iv got a half a smile.
