One of the wires should be bigger. This would be the one you want. The other is for the light.

Don't know what the yellow wire is. It is not in the Ford diagrams. The two black are the grounds and the light should be a dark blue and white wire. The light blue and with wire is the one you want.

If you read the above statement the grounds are the two black wires. Take your pick.
