SOURCE: Manual Thermostat replcaement with Programmable Digital unit.

Hopefully there are markings on the old t-stat as to what terminal is what.
on the honeywell 8000 use the heat pump labeling and then the standard wiring would be
R- red
AUX-white
Y- yellow
B- O/B
C- black
G- green
There should not be a bare wire, it probably just has the insulation stripped back way too far.
You should probably open the furnace and compare the terminal label in the furnace to the wire color. normally yellow and blue pass through the furnace and are wire nutted to wires going to the outdoor unit. In the furnace the white wire will connect to the w or w1 terminal. also, you will need to set the Honeywell stat to have the following parameters.
170-7
190-1
200-0
other parameters that I did not specify, you may read the manual and make your own decision but I recommend factory settings for the other parameters

SOURCE: Thermostat wiring

your best bet and where i would start is to identify where the coulors are conected at the fernace. in the industry we use standard wireing coulors wher green is g for fan and red is rh=switched trans power for heating . rc=switched transformer power for cooling . now normaly there is only one transormer so you would put a jumper from rc to rh and conect the red wire from the furnace to eather of these.jumper installed. the y is your cooling witch is normaly the yellow wire. o on the stat is for a heat pump if you nead to energize reversing valve in cooling mode . w is first stage heating and this can be conected to eather brown or white youll have to check at the furnace to see witch it is . the final wire eather brown or white should be conected to c or 24v common witch you didnt say you see on the thermostat. once again
red to rc and rh
green to g
yellow to y
brown or white to w
brown or white to common or c


please post feadback hope i was of help

Wire nut or tape the black off. The red is normally 24volt supply power to the t-stat. Blue may or may not be the common. Have a voltmeter?

if you have 2 wire at thermostat Terminals at furnace that the thermostat wire attach to should be R & W if your new thermostat has R & W terminals is should work, an easy thing to remember is the red wire on R the white wire on W. If 4 wire at thermostat at furnace green on G, Blue on Y, red on R,and white on W same at thermostat If these do not match find a thermostat with these terminals

Usually there is a blue wire to the thermostat but in this case it is not. instead there is a black wire. i used that one as blue. now there is no heat. it is a hunter cool/ heater unit.
