Default clutch interlock bypass?

alright well ive search the whole site an read all the bypass threads an still cant figure out how to bypass the clutch switch on my truck. it says theres 2 wires at the switch but my 1992 ford ranger 4 L manual, has 6 wires (red/lt Blue, pink, green, lite blue, white/ red, blue/yellow) what wires do i cross to bypass this?

the small wire on the top of the starter relay i was checking continuity to find where that wire goes an i found that it goes to a connector in the cab but its a red/white wire not the red/lt blue thats on the relay an then there is not wiring coming out of that connecter where the red/white wire goes in? so am i missing something that wont let my truck start?. or to make things easier how do i wire up a 2 way toggle switch to that post on the relay so i can manual start the starter?

Does your truck have a PATS system (theft light)? If so, the light should be on steady when the key is on before it can crank. Blinking fast would indicate a malfunction and no starter... Still could be the clutch switch, or even the key switch.

I belive I crossed different wires. I will check for you. after dinner

I guess on an 89 BII the wires are different colors. I crossed the pink wires on both sides.

Or, grab a module out of an automatic truck. Plugs right in.

IF that is the case the circuit is interrupted elsewhere.

This truck isn't an "in progress" conversion from an automatic is it?

The starter circuit is what an electrical technician would call
"daisy chain" wiring.

the clutch interlock is one of THREE switches that
turn on the starter relay

there's the obvious ignition switch, there's the clutch interlock switch
and there's the neutral safety switch.

And even though a manual trans truck doesn't HAVE a Neutral Safety Switch
it DOES have part of the wiring for it and a Jumper, a little loop of wire, where the transmission harness connects to the engine bay harness.

Look on the plastic inner fender back below the master cylinder.
There are two connectors there, one is to the "Frame harness"
on a 1993-94 there are two smaller ones that goes to the
engine guage sensors AND to the transmission there should
be a little loop of red wire with a blue stripe off the back of
one of those smaller connectors.
