There is not a plug and play harness, you have to attach to the rear lights in the trunk. Best spot is behind the plastic cover that is over the trunk latch.

it isn't anywhere close to that bad! 3 wires on one side (left turn, running, brakes), and only one from the other (right turn)

You WILL need an adapter module to go from a 4 wire system to 3 wire.

pics aren't really going to help. just peel off the plastic and probe for the wires using a multimeter. tap them however you want and run them into the converter box. run that out the rubber grommet at the bottom of the trunk... not much to it.
