Question about Heating & Cooling
SOURCE: Need help with wiring thermostat
first do you have a heat pump unit or standard a/c? standard a/c connections at the thermostat go like this red wire to rh-rc which is the 24v power and you don't have to remove the jumper.white goes to w which is the heating wire yellow goes to y which is the cooling wire green goes to g which is the fan wire and blue goes to c which is the common wire. so if your stat has rc- rh ywgc you should be set if the wires on the furnace correspond with the same alpha designation.orange may be used if u have a heat pump unit otherwise it may just be a spare you cap off and leave behind the subplate.

Typically if you have a yellow wire in the "y" terminal blue is used as common or "c". As far as your jumper from rc to rh, that will depend upon what type of heat you have. If all of your heat and cooling come from your packaged unit outside, yes you will need the jumper. If this does not work maybe you have a bad breaker or transfomer.

If you have a heat pump do not put your blue wire on b. Put it on x or c. If you don't have an inline fuse you may have blown your transformer.

Yes, I believe that you will be fine. If the original wiring is correct then I have listed the basic wiring below. As always read the directions and make sure the wiring matches your system.
Red wire = Rh (24v power, should have an exsisting jumper to RC)
White wire = W (heat mode)
Yellow (or sometimes blue) wire = Y (A/C)
Green wire = G (Indoor Fan)
