Connect the Pink wire to the Tan wire with a red stripe.

You can find those two wires at the old connector to the DTRS (neutral safety switch that WAS on the transmission shifter shaft).

The best repair is to get a harness from a manual shift truck and replace that section and add the clutch pedal switch.

You'll have a constant CEL with the auto ECU but It'll work just fine.
