Missing my Instrumental Panel Dimmer Switch

I am new to the forum. I received my 2007 Solstice GXP and it was missing its Instrumental Panel Dimmer Switch. I was able to find the dash board switch for the panel but I am confused about what is supposed to be attached to it. Almost every car part website lists a different connector/pigtail.

I would appreciate it if someone would point me in the right direction to determine the proper connection. A OEM part number or the correct name would be really helpful.

I am a novice (as if this email does not identify me) and I want to try to fix this switch myself so ANY information that I could review would be appreciated. Thank you for considering my question.

Have a great Day

Here is the connector diagram and the wiring schematic.

If you have the switch and it isn't hooked up, then somewhere behind the panel you should find a female plug with a purple wire and a dark green wire attached. This plugs directly into the dimmer switch. It is a four terminal female plug but only has the two wires connected.
