On the back of my controller box I have 3 rows of connectors the top is 5 pin the middle is 9 pin and bottom is 4 pin, I am using the 5 pin until today when one of the soldered pins broke and I have no more 5 pin connectors. Can I use the 4 pin connectors and what is the what wire goes to what pin.
Thank you

The motors are just four wire but I think I have it figured out as when I bought the kit it came with four mic plugs and I am only using 3 just had to go on a hunt to find the wayward plug.
Thank you

For motors please use 5pin circular connectors. 4pin connectors are used for limit switch connection.

See top row of connectors:
