Red is your positive feed - prob from acc switch.
Brown is park light wire - so your radio lights go dim when you turn on your parklights/headlights
Grey is a speaker positve
Black is ground (negative)
there should be a grey with some colour stripe usually black, sometimes green, which is your speaker negative.
Don't know why there would be more than one black wire....

What type is the original stereo? Presumably you have just two speakers?

Those colours aren't original factory colours ...

Its the old mechanical type stereo...yes only 2 speakers!

I think the wire is brown...could possibly be orange but just dulled over time..

It dosent have any illumination at nite!

OK makes sense - the orange and orange/green stripe is left spkr. The grey and grey/green stripe is right spkr.

You'll have to go back along the loom a little way by peeling the insulation to identify the correct colours - as you say they have dulled and so it will be difficult until you uncover some virgin wires...
