Default Unidentified wire at ign switch

Hi, hoping someone can help me figure this wire out. Most everything matches wiring diagram, other than no drk gr wire, and the addition of said wire which is a solid brown going to acc along with the nrn/wh striped wire that belongs there. Any idea what the solid brown wire may be?
Thanks,
Dave

1. Ignition switch has two BRN wires. One BRN with WHT trace and one solid BRN
2. Dark GRN is right hand rear light. Goes from turn sig to rear thru several connectors.
3. You posted NRN
4. The solid BRN is part of the GEN light circuit

Thanks Azken, yea typo with the nrn didn't take the time to proof before post. I'm in the process of hooking up a 2 way switch and a momentary button until my replacement ignition gets here. So if I've got this right I switch the red and pink, run a jumper from pink to momentary to violet. Will this also give me lights and turn signals? Or is there something else to hook up? Appreciate the help!
Dave

I have a feeling that may not be the correct routing of wires as now it won't start or turn over. I get a very loud CLICK when I hit the start button. Battery is charged, have it on charger to make sure lol. Any suggestions??
Thanks,
Dave

Dave, I can help you and I can get the motor running. If you still need help you need to STOP and wait for my input. So let me know what the status is. Don't do anything more. If you have it figured let me know.

Is the momentary a remote starter switch or some switch you are rigging up?

CLICK ON MY NAME AND SEE MY EMAIL. EMAIL ME, IT IS MUCH FASTER THAN DOING THIS ON A FORUM POST.
