Is it bolted on behind the actual linkage as in using the same bolts? If so thats for the nuetral safety switch and your back up lights. If you look behind the air cleaner at the firewall the wires plug in there to the harness.

Not real sure to be honest. Your reverse lights out? Take the tailight out. Inside should be a ground wire held on by a sheetmetal screw. Check that out and see if everything is ok. If its good then chances are the switch is bad.
