CPS help

I need help Jeepers, so here's the deal. My connector joining my CPS to to my main harness was left loosy goosy by a mechanic and laid on my engine. Needless to say, all the plastic melted and shorted the wires. I took it to a mechanic to fix it and he just cut and spliced the wires together. I am now attempting to fix it correctly but I am having a hard time finding a wiring diagram for the parts. I know which wires do what coming off the harness (orange is +5, brown/yellow is ground and gray/black is the sensor feed or something along those lines). What I need to know is placement into the connector from the harness (since mine is gone) and placement from the sensor into it's connector to the harness. It's only three wires, but what a pain in the tookus. I want to be able to go purchase a new sensor if I should need to and just plug it in like it was intended to be done. Stupid "mechanics".

Oh yea. My bad. TJ, 2.5 liter, standard. Probably should have thrown that in there too.

Since you've not filled out your vehicle profile I don't know what model year you have. Luckily the wiring colours are the same as in my 97. See if this helps...

Is that the nib on the top? I just want to make sure I'm looking at it correctly. I can recognize the colors in your picture perfectly (great pic).

The release tab of the connector is on the underside. I can't get to the connector to unplug it and get another pic because of how vehicles are parked in the drive. Maybe tomorrow, I just need to remember to do it.

If you can get a picture or perhaps just tell me the configuration with the "fin" on top. I think it opposite of the release tab but I don't have one here for reference. There should be an alignment nib on top and the release tab on bottom. If that's the case, I'm good to go.

Forgot to get the pic so just been outside. Focus isn't on the plug but you can see the wider release tab shape which when mounted is on the underside, and the nib/slot is on top. You can just see the orange wire too which shows the orientation.
