Little yellow wire

I just bought a new creeper to make it easier to get under the rover and was looking around and found a yellow wire under the drivers side near the chassis that wasn't plugged into anything.
After looking through my workshop manual I came to the conclusion that it is the vehicle speed sensor MFI connection. The thing is, I can't find where it connects to. Anyone have any feedback?

Do 94's have the mechanical speedo or use a VSS from the transfer case?

I'm almost sure it has the VSS.

94s have a mechanical speedo, but there is a little box that is goes thru which sends a signal to the computer. When it thinks you've hit 85mph it cuts off fuel. The little transducer is on the drivers side on top of a bracket. Speedometer cable comes in from the transfer case - goes thru the box and then on to the speedometer. If you follow the cable from the transfer case, you can feel it. I don't remember the wire color and the electrical diagrams are at the shop.

The yellow/white wire that is a single wire with a Lucar plug on the end is the ground trigger wire for the handbrake warning lamp.

The EFI speed sensor wires are in a loom that has 2 wires and a larger round black plug on the end.

Hope that helps
