Anyone know how to wire the reverse light when using an automatic wire harness in a manual car?

yea, you have to run a wire from the reverse sensor on the tranny to inside the car i think in the center console. When you use an auto harness its looking for the shifter to tell it its in reverse, on a manual the transmission itself says its in reverse. Get your helms or haynes and see where/what color the wire is for reverse lights, then run the wire from the sensor to that wire. Wow, im getting myself confused.

heres a little write up

Auto To manual :
Wiring: On the shifter for the auto transmission, you will see a 14-wire plug. Cut the plug from the auto shifter assembly, and leave about 5 inches of wire.
Looking at the plug, the positions are (left to right) (top row) 8 (unused and blank from factory),9,10,11,12,13,14 and (bottom row) 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. Starter (top) Sensor: There are two heavy gauge wires (position #10 and position #11). Connect these two wires to the top sensor (clutch interlock switch) on the clutch pedal assembly. This will only allow the car to start when the clutch pedal is engaged. In other words, everytime you press the clutch you will close the circuit.
Its the huge plug under your shifter. Splice the 2 biggets black wires and you will have already bypassed your clutch switch .

Cruise Control (bottom) Sensor: The bottom switch is your cruise control disable switch. Run two wires from the switch: connect one to the position #1 (black) and the other to #9 (pink). Everytime you press the clutch pedal, the cruise controll will disable.

Reverse Lights: Look at the plug you used on the engine wiring harness to hook up to your reverse sensor on the manual transmission. Run two wires from this switch to the yellow wire and a green wire with black stripe (positions 3 and 4) at the big plug that you cut off from the auto shifter. Now your reverse lights should work.

Theres also two wires that need to be connected together so that you can remove your key. But I can remember the wire colors. If you look on you auto shifter, and use your kidneys a little Click the image to open in full size. you can figure it out
