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.

I need the colour codes from the m4 escort to replace radio


the wire colours bore no resemblance to the colours that were shown in the manual so I used a voltage meter to find out which wire was my permanent live, which was my ignition live and which was my earth/negative. As I already knew the colour codes for the speakers from the radio I was installing it was just a processes of elimination to get them in the right order
