Camshaft timing adjuster wire

hello everyone. my camshaft timing adjuster was leaking badly and replaced the seals but the wire adapter that connects to it deteriorated and i need some help. i need to know which wire goes where. if anyone has pics of there it would be perfect. and i forgot to mention it is the passenger side. if someone can say which wire goes on top and which on the bottom i bought the plastic adapter but i don't know which wire goes where

Check out the colour coding of the wires on the drivers side.

OK right, connect them any way you want to start with, its a 50 50 chance you will get it right or wrong, if wrong it will pop the fuse on the gm module located in the module box, you know the coffin shaped box, if you get it right then no probs, either way you only risk a fuse. The GM module has four fuses on top of it I seem to remember and if wrong one will pop and the engine will not start.
