02 TB Rear Gate Swap with 05

Hello everyone,
My name is Josh and i am new to the forums, as in this is my first so bare with me. I have searched and cant find anything on my issue so i am starting a new one. If i missed it please forgive me. So i have a 02 LS SWB TB and the rear gate was smashed. I recently found an 05 on Marketplace for parts and bought the gate off it. Of course the wires at the boot were broken on it and mine so after replacing i i spliced in a piece from the donor TB but noticed while doing so that the new hatch had 1 more wire (6 total 3 orange 1 brwn 1 blue 1 black)then the bodys plug(5 total 2 orange 1 blue 1 brwn 1 black). Thats when i noticed the donor hatch lock does not have a key whereas my old one did. My question is this, is there a way to run that extra wire and make the rear gate work or should i go get my old gates button with the key and put it in the new gate.? Right now the lock doesnt engage when i hit the button from the front. The rear defrost doesnt work but one side is broken.(the tiny piece that sticks to the window is broke off? Dont kniw if that will make the whole thing not work?) Rear washer/wiper doesnt work and as far as i know none of these things worked when we bought it used. I do not know if my TB was equiped with keyless entry or not but i read on a forum here that if you hold down window down and cycle the ignition on off x3 the doors will lock and the horn would beep indicating that it was and it did.(please dont quote me kn the process because i dont remember exactly) any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
