Well Happy 2 pin connector on the gearbox JTS engine

Hi can anyone tell me what the 2 pin connector does on the gearbox near to the oil fill plug does - it seems to share the wiring path with the maf sensor . The car is in limp mode and i suspect its due to this as one of the pins is snapped off - . Thanks i have searched web to no aavail

Jaaaaag

It's probably the reverse light switch, or if it's a selespeed it could be the clutch speed sensor (if it's not connected you'll only get 1st, 2nd and reverse).

A reverse light switch shouldn't cause limp mode though.
