I believe that is vaccuum actuated. Should not need any wires.

I've not seen one like that but it may be for an dash 4wd indicator light(?) if it is a vaccum operated locker.

Looks like your vacuum actuated CAD was replaced with a posilok. There should be a knob or handle on or under the dash that you pull out to lock the axle shafts now.

What's the advantage to a posilok?

Nope, the posi lock just replaces the vacuum actuator with a cable. The yj has a 2piece shaft and that connects the two. You can plug the 4x4 light up to those terminals, but I don't.

It should. There is a striker style sensor in the posi lock. It is adjustable, and it might need to be adjusted for your light to work.

It doesn't matter what wire goes where, it's just a circuit.
