Default Need to ID a wire

I just pulled my engine. After we noticed a wire coming down from the top of the tranny tunnel. It looked like the connector had been pulled off. However we could not find what it was connected to. We followed it up thru the tunnel where the shift lever is. Auto. It went up under the dash over to the steering column. Under the steering column is a black plastic thing with two connectors with two blue colored wires on them. Anybody know what this wire is for and what it connects to?

Sounds like a neutral safety switch to me.?.? '68 uses different colors. The plug is in the same location near the steering column, though. Do you have a '69 AIM or wiring diagram? Wait, I just read a thread in the Electrical area about reverse lights and safety switch. It had a picture of the lower column and Everett mentioned blue wires. Do a little digging...

GM never ran a wire through the tunnel on an auto car for a neutral safety switch. Could it be the converter lock-up wire for your 700R4?

I dont think I have a converter lock up. I will get my schematic out and look it up. Thought somebody might know off the top of their head. Thanks

Could be the signal going to the trans to tell it to drop out of OD when brake is applied since an OD trans is an add-on.
Traced the wires back to where they originate?

I just thought of TCS- vacuum delay until in high gear?

Thanks Everett. Where would it connect on a 700 r4. I did not see a connection.
