I take it you don't have access to a test light? No being sarcastic, but if no color can be confirmed, for $5.00 at autoparts store or hardware store, it will help you find it, and certainly come in handy in future.

Wires have been cut in my citroen saxo vts where the radio goes. i have a radio but as the cars original sterio loom has been cut out i am having trouble knowing what wire connects to what


based on not having steering controls if you have you will need a cit wiring diagram but the norm is
you will need a volt meter and a 9v battery,
test all wires with meter to fin a live with the ign switched off, ths is the live memory feed
the try again with the ign on, this is the switched live
there will be an earth/ground and light feed when you power the lights on.
when you do that to find the speakers
take a pair of remaining wires and place them on the 9v battery, work through the wires til you here a speeaker crakle, then continue till you find all speaker, that will allow you to hook up to a aftermarket unit,
or if you can get to a scrap car of the same year and type, cut the harness out and match up the wires
