1995 Aero Star van transmission questions

'95 Ford Aero Star Van... ( A4LD ) Trans... Has (4) Wires hanging down, For Shifts into 3rd. & O.D. [ RED,WHITE,BLACK & BROWN.] Where do they go?
Which Wire Shifts 3rd. Which wire shifts O.D. ? "Black Ground for both?" I Want to connect them to (2) "Toggle Switches". Each Toggle has 3 places for connection.

I have a 86 Ranger with the 2.3l and a4ld trans. When starting out in 1st when cold it shifts OK, but when it warms up you have to let off the gas to get it to shift. Also once you get into 3rd in shifts up and back (3rd to 4th and back). Any ideas what the problem could be? one more question, How much trouble would it be to install the M5R1 manual tranny? Thanks for any help you can give.
the electrics that go to the trans are for 4th and tcc apply. it could be electric, it could be mechanical. as it still has mechanical parts applying the band for 4th gear.
with having to let off the gas to get it to shift when hot, and the fluxuation of it going in and out of 4th gear, it may have lived its serviceable life.
as far as installing a m5r1, it possible as they came in those trucks and mazda pickups as well. it would be best to get the whole assembly from a donor vehicle. under the dash is where to look first to make sure it will work as since its an automatic, the under dash assembly for the pedals may not be able to accept a clutch pedal and the bracketry may need to be changed, along with possibly cutting a hole in the floorboard for the clutch master to go through.
biggest thing i hate with the ford hydraulics is that the slve is internal and a real bear to get properly bled out. hope this helps.

3rd is hydraulic, not electrically controlled. are you sure these wires dont go to the neutral switch that screws down into the case?
