I am trying to figure out what a PINK wire and GREEN wire are for.

I have a Pink wire and a Green wire that go into a flat plug in the DASH harness in a 69 Camaro. I cannot figure out where this would plug into?? Any suggestions?

I believe they are backup light switch wires. Are they going to the floor console??

Agree should be for the trans backup light harness.

So where is the reverse light/backup light switch then? Is it by the column?

Auto or manual?
If Auto, column or floor?

If auto column shifted, 67 & 68, the b/up switch & neutral switch would be on the column, top, next to the firewall, inside.
If auto console shifted, 67 & 68, then the b/up & neutral switch would be located in the console on the shifter, pass side of shifter.
If column or console shifted manual, 67 & 68, the switch is bolted on the trans. The switch has a harness/plug and would plug into its related receptacle next to the gas pedal.
If 69, man or auto, column or console shifted, the switch is located on the top of the steering column, inside at the firewall.
