Default Reverse light switch

I don't have working back up/reverse lights on my truck. I checked the fuse and voltage to the fuse box and bulbs. All good. So i am assuming that it is the reverse light switch. After some searching, i believe this should be on the transmission, drivers side. Trouble is i can't see anything other than the shift selector. Hopefully there are some pictures attached - one showing where the reverse light switch might be meant to be, one showing a connector with a wire coming out and then back in on itself. I believe at some point in its past, the engine was changed on this truck. The plate on the door says i have transmission E. Is there any chance that the reverse light switch was removed, and the circuit now controlled by the shift selector?
