No power to rear gate

I purchased a 97 zj with a bad motor now that thats fixed I have a couple of other issues. My rear gate doesn't allow my interior to turn off the window poper doesn't work and the wiper doesn't work. The only power I have Is to the alarm contact on the key. Is there a diagram that shows what the wires are and the color code?

You probably have some disconnected connectors in the rear hatch. Just in case,

Liftgate or Liftglass ajar switches may not be adjusted/working properly. If it appears one(both) is open, rear wiper/washer is disabled and courtesy lights stay on. Try disabling the courtesy lamps by pressing the liftgate light lens (with all other doors closed).
