You can either try removing the terminals of those that were cut from the connector and carefully trying to open the ends and re-crimp the wiring or solder the wires to what’s left on the terminals or go to a junkyard and cut out the connector with enough wire to splice back into your harness. From what I can tell 97 through 01 should be the same connector.
If you can see the terminal numbers they are as follows:
1. LTG/ORG - 12V
2. LTG/ORG - Ground via GEM
3. BLK/LTBLU - to dome light
4. BLK/PNK - from instrument dimming switch
5. LTG/ORG - 12V
With Key on engine off, you should see power on terminal 1 & 5 (note, power is from same splice so it wont matter if you mix up these two when re-connecting).
Once you establish which of the three LTG/ORG wires have 12V, as noted above, will leave you with only one that does not have power. This one should go to the GEM which is terminal 2.
