people asking for help should atleast give a small decription of the unit they are working on. (a pet peeve I have about posting)
Is this a FT4EAT or a FT 10 speed RX tranny, or is it the tranny out of your new ML530?
I have a FSM and have been working on my 1989 FT4EAT but need alittle bit more info if you want help.
Again sorry to ask so many questions,

go easy on jumpering wires together untill you know you have the propper ones in hand. some thing dont take kindly to jumpering all willy nilly. but old subarus are rather forgiving.

(I use the latin Willus Nillus) But what he is dead on.
If it is a VSS, the TCU (Transmission Control Unit) probably will not take kindly to having a dead short on a sensor input.
But you could try it and watch for smoke.
Can you tell us what color the wires are on this mystery connector? Or is it too tight?
I have a FSM and an 89 4EAT on the bench, if you could get a pict, I could see if it is on my unit.

They're black wires, black coating and black soot...
The little plastic piece in the sensor spins in place and does not push in... sounds already like I pulled a VSS
What sucks is, I had to cut the wire to get to the connector, so that sensor is gone... Hope it's not too pricey if it's a VSS

1.) (LH) side reverse lights
2.) (LH) Neutral safety switch
3.) (RH) Diff lock pilot switch (Directly bellow the arm on the pass. side)
these all apear to be 2 wire connections .... now to figure out what the connector is in the rear of the tranny (not the sides)
it may be the VSS?
Still looking in the FSM of the section 2 and 3 manualfor specific info but not yet found...

I don't know if I have a neutral safety switch, since I can start it in Neutral with the clutch engaged and I don't have cruise...
There's the 4WD switch too...
Oh well, I 'll be at the dealer tomorrow, I'll figure out what's what...

cruise control. If there wasn't a sensor that showed the cruise the clutch was ingauged then its not gonna engauge the cruise throttle control, same goes if its not in gear so if its in neutral then the curcuit is also used for that too. Anyone else think that this is also feasible?
