It is on the transmission. They probably forgot to connect it.

I've got a 1998 Mercury Mystique with a 2.5L V6,the automatic tranny .Can I replace the automatic transmission with a manualtransmission? Thank you

Yeah you can but it won't be easy. I would check some salvage yards for one with a stick in it. That way you can find all the parts you will need. Not only do you need the trans, you will need clutch, flywheel, slave cylinder, master cylinder, Clutch and brake pedals, cv shafts, mounts, shifters, shifter cables, and the computer, plus some other parts. I have done some of these conversions, they are not impossible. I have done this to a 2000 BMW 323. I can help you more if you want.
