I can supply the wiring diagrams. I will need to know which engine came in this in order to look up the wiring diagrams.

I can see the wire I need to tie into for the parking brake switch. It says that its part of the park brake assembly. Is there a an illustration to show where the switch is on the brake? Looking up under the dash, I don't see the switch or wire. I don't want to pull the assembly to access the switch wire if not necessary.For the 'in gear' and 'speed' connection requirements, I don't see anything obvious that provides for either. All three of the diagrams are for the 4-wheel drive/transfer case. I would think I need something specific to the transmission that would provide wiring to indicate that the transmission is in gear (or out of park). I would think the same would be the same or the speed indicator. Please advise accordingly?

Is there an illustration showing where it's located on the parking brake assembly?The transfer case diagrams do not provide me with the information I need. There should be a diagram for the transmission that shows both the gear indicator and speed control wiring that runs to the dashboard.

You didn't answer the second part of my question and you are hitting me up for more money? It' supposed to be a 100% guarantee. How do I go about getting my money back?
