My Focus is Sick: PATS Wiring Placement

I need some help please! My 2000 Focus is sadly stuck on the driveway until I fix it. I don't want to have to get it towed to the dealer so I'm hoping you guys can help me out. I need to replace the wiring that plugs into PATS transceiver. I just picked up the new part from the dealer (image 2) but the wires aren't the same color as the ones already in my car.

There are four wires (image 1) with different colors and I need to know where each one goes. The wires plug into the transceiver which is right below the ignition cylinder (image 3). I'm hoping to get my Focus back into driving condition so any help is really appreciated!!

Thanks a lot for helping. I tried to put the wires in that order. From top to bottom in my my first picture, I put it in order 1, 3, 2, 4 and also 1, 2, 3, 4 and I'm still getting the PATS light blinking when I try to start the car. Is that the right order according to your diagram?

I would say yes because it is from Ford own manual.

by switching 2 and 3 though you may have shorted out the new module.

You need to post info about what you're driving. Here's a site that list Ford wiring. Look for your year and model.

That is asking us how to fix the car so it can be stolen. That's why you're having problems getting an answer. You've also brought back a 4 year old thread.
