2006 to pre 2006 ranger transfer case actuator wiring?

Hi, looking for two wiring diagrams. Browsed the forum before and searched but never posted.

Cant seem to find anything for a 2006+ ranger in terms of wiring diagrams.

The wiring was ripped out of the transfer case actuator with no way of soldering it back on or fixing it. I have 2 motors here with different wiring.

The first is the original damaged one, has a round 8 pin connector, two wires to the motor and a straight row of 5 wires on the plastic cover with zero clue which wires originally went where except that red and black were on the motor. The only part I can find that looks the same is listed for 1995-2004 models. And the 2006 model at the parts store has a square plug.

I had what I thought was a pre 2006? motor that has the same amount of wires, but the motor wires were orange and yellow, and the 5 wires on the plastic piece are in two rows. it tested good and worked.

If anyone could send a diagram or the colors of what wires do what it would be appreciated (using the original end with black/red wires to motor, to the actuator with two rows of wires) as our location is limited in parts supply and an actuator would take 3 weeks and $450 to get in my hands.

Here is the 2006 4WD diagram, looks to be the same back to 2001.
1999 and earlier is different, the other diagram

Sorry on the delay. Those were the same as I was able to pull up but the colors are not the same.

The 2006 has a black and red wire to the motor. Then a yellow wire, grey wire, tan wire, white wire and brown I think. And is this style. But not orange/yellow motor wires.

The pre 2006 has a orange and yellow wire to the motor. Then a yellow, orange, purple ,tan and another I cant see from my picture. It is identical to this one

Id assume no matter the wire color the pins inside dont change. If I could get the pin out of the wires on the plastic covers that would be perfect.
