Bargman Plug Purple Wire Conundrum

Our power jack on the Rav got smashed this winter backing into a frozen bank. I'm getting ready to rewire, but (of course) the wires on the old jack don't match those on the wiring diagram for the new one. Specifically, there's a PURPLE wire on the car side of things, but no purple wiring pin on the jack. I figure I can just haul out the VOM and test stuff, but if anyone has an "oh, duh... here's what's what" answer I'd be grateful!

As always, thanks!

I don't know. The wire size may give a clue. Have you tried tracing it back?
or try this
