Need urgent help again guys

So I have finished my swap mechanically but now I need to get it started. I know there is a way to ground the auto harness out to thinking it is in neutral. I had a ZF auto, any ideas which pins need to be connected?

Van, thanks for the post but that's not what I am trying to do. I only have the clutch switch and not the module. There is a way to short the auto trans harness into thinking it is in neutral. Not the best long term fix bit it will have to work for now.

Anybody know what pins it is?

Bump guys essentially what I am asking is quick two pins from the zf auto plug need to be connected by a wire so the computer thinks there is still an auto trans in neutral

Can you examine the neutral safety switch from the console if you still have it? The connector on the end should give you the info you need.
