I was going to change out the transmission swift unit on my

Customer Question

I was going to change out the transmission swift unit on my 05 ford 4x4 exped. with a new one. The wiring colors on the new one did not match the old one, also there was a white wire coming our of the transaxle going into connector of the old unit. what was this white wire and the new unit has no place for the white wire.
JA: Have you checked all the fuses? Do you have a wiring diagram?
Customer: yes to both
JA: What year is your Swift?
Customer: It looks like the orginal 05
JA: Are you fixing your Swift yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes. I took the unit off and tested it with the wires connected. it work ok. it must have been stuck. however I still donot know what the white was is used for. It was a single wire coming directly out of the transaxle
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: a wiring diagram showing white wire. I have fords 05 wiring manual, but it does not show the white wire. I can read electrical shematics, but this one has me stumped
