Sensor on front of 2.5L MTX tranny

What is the sensor on the front of the Manual trans in a 2.5L with two wires coming out of it? It threads into the tranny. I thought It was the speed sensor at first.

back up light switch... according to the wsm

I am starting to get a laundry list of stuff done to my car. Does that make it fast? No! Does that mean i spent too much money on a toy? Maybe. Do i have fun every time i jump in my car and drive? Hell yes.

That's it, thank you. I should have checked on Alldata before I left the shop. No speedo, I'm guessing it's a loose connection on the cluster(hoping anyway).

It will sometimes start working when I hit a bump. The car set for an extended period of time and I decided to get it back on the road. I replaced the friction gear springs over the weekend and now I just need to get the speedo working so I can drive it further than from my house and to work and back. I only live two minutes from work.

Well, my trip meter works. I'm assuming my Odometer works as well. I put it on the rack at work, put it in gear and messed around with the cluster. I was gonna test the VSS, but since the trip is working the VSS must be sending a signal. Looks like I need a speedo head.
