Neutral Safety/Back-up Light Switch
This is a combination switch which controls both Neutral Safety and Back-up lamp circuits.

As of 1994, the neutral safety switch is referred to as a Manual Lever Position Sensor (MLP).

Park is the last detent when the manual control lever is full forward. Return 2 detents toward the output shaft for Neutral.

Ford Neutral Safety Switch; Ford Reverse Light Switch; Backup Light Switch.
The Neutral Safety Switch wires in my 1971 Ford F100 are orange with a blue stripe.
The Reverse, or Backup Light Switch wires are black with a red stripe.
There are two sets of two wires across this combined neutral safety and backup light switch, for a total of 4 wires. Photos are at the end of this post.
The switch for the 1971 Ford F100 pickup truck is the same as in many other years and models. For details, including parts numbers, see the following quote from an expert at Ford Truck Enthusiasts:
The neutral switch also controls the backup lights, and is the same 1967/77.
C7TZ-7A247-A .. Neutral/Backup Switch (Motorcraft SW-600)
There is no separate backup light switch..except on 1967/68 F350's.
Neutral switch location 1967/77:
The plastic half moon shaped neutral safety switch mounts on the outside lower portion of the steering column (NOT on the transmission!).
It's activated by an inverted Y shaped lever that snaps on the shift tube

The switch is also still available from Ford, but the website is down so I can't post the list & net prices. .
1978 is the FIRST year the F100/350's have the neutral switch mounted on the transmission. __________________

The front, steering wheel side of the neutral / reverse switch after removal from the steering column. The switch's two functions are actuated when the lever in the column moves the switch lever shown here to different positions as gears are selected.
The neutral switch is installed on the steering column near the firewall, with 5/8" bolts into the steering column (visible hole) and down column from a rectangular opening in the column housing. The actuating lever for the switch is attached to the gear shift shaft inside the housing; the lever is visibly protruding from the opening in this image.
