96 burnt plug no run

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic and a host of electrical problems including bucking, backfiring, and stalling after travelling 20 ft, and when put into gear.
I found a melted plug under the air filter housing connecting the main wiring harness to the headlight harness. The wire colors change thru the plug, and some are broke off, so I am going to jump the plug altogether, and put a new one in later because I am stranded out of town without much money. I don't have a repair manual, but I have looked at Autozone schematics, plus downloaded a pdf, but it doesn't show the in and out colors.
My picture won't upload. Can someone tell, or show me what colors go where.

Yea that's the area. Does anyone know what wires connect without the plug? I'm going to the xj forum.
