Overhead Console Wiring Connections

I recently bought a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. It has a few parts that look as if they have been replaced, the most annoying is the over head console. The lights don't work. I took the console down to find that the wiring coming in to the console connectors aren't connected to anything. The problem is the connections coming in don't match the connectors on the console unit. Is there a harness that connects the wires coming in to the console unit?

The two connectors coming in:


The two ends I need to connect to:

This may help you or it may not. I just spent the last two days trying to get one working on my 93 GC

Awesome thanks! That's a really good resource, I am surprised I didn't run across that yet, I have searched google for hours looking for an answer. I am going to hit a junk yard or two this week and try to find the parts I need.

I wonder if your overhead console was replaced with one from a 93-95 model, I've read that they are not compatible with 96+ ZJ's.

And like Lakoswolf said the plugs on your console look just like the ones on mine which I pulled out of a 94 gc just fyi
