1964 Impala SS - Stop Lamp Switch

I'm attempting to identify 2 wires off of the neutral safety switch harness that are located under the dash (opposite end of where the neutral safety harness ends at the shifter). I think they are supposed to connect to the "stop lamp sw" connector (2 wires - black/orange & black/white with "T" configuration connectors). Can someone define a "stop lamp switch"? I don't see were this connection is made!?? Thanks in advance!

64Joker,

Look on the right side of the brake pedal you should see the switch from there. It is attached to a bracket and the movable end is facing down toward the brake pedal. On the back side there are two spade connections. Try looking there for your missing wire connectors

Stop Lamp switch is a '11' type of connector.
I believe an orange wire going in and a white wire to the turn switch

The black and white wires with tracers are commonly dome or courtesy lamps and if the wires do not have a connector on each wire, the 2 wire connector will be a T

You are correct! I located the "T" female connector under the dash (it was hiding! :-) and was able to get 2 of the 3 lights working at the console area. My mistake on the "stop lamp switch" (wiring diagram?!), it was not part of the configuration, sorry!
The final light connector NOT working is the transmission (park, drive, neutral, reverse, etc). There are 2 wires (black and grey) leading to a plastic bulb connector (not sure what bulb #). One is obviously a ground (blk) and the grey wire leads back to the dash with a small metal connector, which I can not located on the wiring diagram???

Is it possible the grey wire goes to the "Lamp" fuse box connector?

Any ideas?? Thanks again....

Final

I was able to trace the problem back under the dash, there was a broken wire that leads to the "lamp" fuse box, fixed it, it works! Continuity test passed! Thanks for your help!
