Wiring harnesses can be very vehicle specific, even minor changes between model years and engine/trans options can make the harness incompatible without hacking into it. I would obtain a part number for that harness from a parts desk at a dealership then go and search the yards for it, you may need to let a local yard use their inter-parts locator to search nationwide.
