Where does this end go?

Hello everyone!

My center console light (storage between the seats) never turns on. Door open or close. The micoswitch seems fine and so do the fuses. And, I've changed the bulb to a new tested one, with no luck.

May I please know where the connector end of the microswitch (white plastic end) goes in the event it's not plugged in...?

EDIT: I think I found a pic showing it. Can someone confirm it's the connector on the right (right green arrow)? If so, where does it go?







Thank you in advance

The plastic nub on the bottom of your door may have snapped off so it’s not making contact with the switch

Thanks 3002 tii, but wouldn't that mean the light will always be on since the microswitch acts like a fridge door?

My light is just not on at all. Fuse and bulb are fine and switch is fine too. I suspect i did not plug the end of the microswitch in when reinstalling my rear console. I want to make sure I know where it goes before I start taking it apart again
