2008 Tacoma electric brake controller question

So I bought an electric brake controller, and I do not have the little harness that plugs into my factory tow package. I need to install this tonight, and the dealership does not have any in stock. I think I found the plug under the dash where the harness would plug into, however the 5 wires going to this pigtail are not the same color as the wires that are mentioned in the brake controller install on the site. Do I have the wrong pigtail? Or if this is the correct one which I think it is, which wire is which? I believe there was a black, yellow and then three other small wires. If someone could help me out, that would be great.

i used chapter 10 of the towing bible (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/tow...ing-bible.html ) to hook everything up in my non-tow package 2007 Tacoma. i believe you only use one wire out of that harness.
