4 Wire Wiper Motor Question

I’m looking for wire identification on the 4 wire wiper motor flat plug. The plug is labeled A B C D. Which wire performs which function? I know there’s low, high, park, and battery. I have factory manuals, but they don’t give a pinout on the plug, nor do they give the colors. FYI, I’m using a Cherokee column and corresponding intermittent box, and a CJ motor. It plays together well- I used the same setup on Copper. But, on Copper I used trial and error and then snipped off the flat plug and hard wired it. And didn't make notes. So- if anyone can tell me which wires perform which function, I’d appreciate it !

This is intermittent, but the wiper motor color/functions appear to be the same:

Those are perfect! Thank you so much! I’m curious- where are you finding these? I have a 79,81, and 82 (MR252) manuals and Shopkey Pro (Mitchell on demand). None of them had this.

This is the jumper harness I’m building. 180331E1-F797-4FB9-8C1C-A8F5808745BD.jpeg

Randy,

Glad they helped.

I have a full printed version back at home. These are from a PDF I got many years ago as well.
I tried to determine where it originated and realized this is actually for the '84 - '86, I just discovered I've been erroneously posting snips here the whole time stating they were for the '83. :shrug:

I like the paper manual more but this is convenient to share for others.

Interesting. I have that manual too. I looked and couldn’t find what I needed. Now I’ll have to double check, but in the mean time your help let me get the harness built. So thank you again.
