Default Pigtail connector to distributor

The harness connector broke apart. It plugs into the distributor on the 95 altima. I need to know the order the wiring should be in or at least what this wire is called to replace it

Default Broken Distributor Connector

The heat and oil deteriorates the distributor connector.
A replacement is needed but it seems no one makes it.
Good used ones are hard to find.

Original 4-wire Distributor connector wiring, starting at the top:

dk blue or black

You can find flat female Molex connector pins at an electronics store
that will work for now. My 94 Altima is doing fine with these.
I have also heard the pins in a hard drive power connector can be made to work.

Default 1995 Altima Distributor Pigtail

The perfect replacement can be found on a 1999 Mazda Millenia "S", trust me on this one... You'll also likely to have burned the 25AMP ingition fuse located under the hood next to the battery (you can use the 25AMP electric window fuse in the same fuse box)... Good Luck!Pigtail connector to distributor-95-altima-replacement-connector-jpg

Ps: Be mindful of the order of wire colors (see previous post)...

Default 1995 Nissan Altima

These codes are not working for me. I am getting power to the cable. I tried black red yellow blue (top to bot) and the car won't start?
