Question about 1999 Dodge Caravan

Back up lights are always on, 1999 dodge grand caravan

My back up lights are now always on. I did some research and found that it may be the neutral safety switch. The problem is that I can't find it. It is supposed to be located in the front of the transmission (3.3L, 3 speed) but all I can find is the input speed sensor, output speed sensor, transmission range sensor and the transmission solenoid pack.I picked up one from the local auto parts store in hoping that i would see it, but I haven't. Can some one tell me what I'm missing or give me a link of a picture that might help. Even the car manual was of no help.

SOURCE: how to change neutral safety

if it is a 3 speed it is easy ( rarely bad) 3 prong plug below the cooler lines coming from radiator, if it is an overdrive could be similar with two plugs , the one pointing towards front of van is neutral switch. some late 1996 vans with od have an internal switch like the later models and will require valve body removal . if this is the case seek a professional.
