I connected the blue wire to the R and the white wire to the W on the old thermostat and shoved the new Honeywell 5-1-1 Day programmable thermostat up the first guys *** that i ran into at Canadian Tire
Thanks for your help

You will have to have schematics from the old wiring diagram. Then you will have to confirm its consistency with actual old wiring before you can be sure that the wires run to the proper places on the old heater and a/c system. This sounds like a gas furnace and is simpler than a heatpump. Once you know what distinguishes the wires with the same color, you should label them and then you may call them a different color if they were wired with wrong wire colors. You may be in luck if you go to the furnace control box an look at the terminals.. They are usually labeled with a R for Red and W for white and Bl for Blue and B or Black. If you have other colors on these then it sounds that it was wired with wire spare wire by someone who knew what they were doing but neglected to leave a path for someone else follow.
You may be able to use a continuity tester of circuit tester to id these wires that are in question...
ie, once indintified, you can match with the requirements of the new stat.

I had the same problem and decided to take a chance and call honeywell customer support. I am shocked, they solved my problem! At least in my situation we found that the blue wire ran the compressor. Instead of hooking up to "blue" on the thermostat, we hooked it up to "white." It works wonderfully now.

red goes to RC and RH, White goes to W, Green goes to G and Blue goes to Y. iam assuming on the old tstat that Red whent to R White went to W Green went to G and Blue went to Y
