Most auto parts stores will have an aftermarket 4 pin plug set. They usually just plug into the existing wire harness (somewhere around the back bumper) using a "T" connector. Simply unplug the factory plug and put the "T" plug in the middle of it.

Just google the part number. It's made by Hoppy's.

EDIT:
Here's one place to get it. Chances are good you could find it cheaper at Wal-mart or something like that.
