The colors are as follows. grey/tan+ LF, green/ RF, brown+/yellow LR, dk. blue+/blue RR. You can also verify the speakers by using a 9v battery. Hold one wire on one terminal of the 9v battery then just strike the other wire for only a second DO NOT HOLD the wires to the battery for more than an instant. You will hear a pop noise from the speaker.
Orange is memory, yellow 12v switched, black ground/earth.

***Warning!!!!!! There's 2 yellow and 2 grey wires (other grey is dimmer). If the original factory harness is still there and not cut up, all the speakers will be next to each other on the plug(s). If not, you MUST test the wire(s) with a test light (or some other way), verify the 12 switched (yellow) incase a fuse is blown. Same with the dimmer lead, you need to turn up and down the dash dimmer to get a response from that wire. If you use the wrong wires you will send 12V into the speaker leads from the radio and kill the radio!

Brake lights dont work, the one in the back window does, maybe a ground wire is off? 98 chevy lumina

Make sure both of the bulbs are good first. But the common problem with these body style lumina is the turn signal switch goes open and does not allow power for the lower break lights to work. The 3rd break light does not get power through the turn signal switch. You can by pass the switch and jump the two wires together and make sure they work before replacing the turn switch. There is a big bulk head connector at the bottom of the steering colume. There are lots of wires in there but you are looking for a white wire and an organ wire that are beside each other. I don't have a schmatic at home to give you the pin locations. But they will be on one of the outside connectors. There are 3 sets of wires coming together into this bulk head.
Hope some of that make since?

98 chevy lumina. Code 113, 102, 171. runs then

the code 113 is intake air temp cicuit, high input.
the code 102 is mass air flow volume air flow circuit, low input.
the code 171 is system too lean (bank 1)
I sure hope this helps you out. Dont sound like anything too major though
