The orange is optional, so I think polskamafia's link is pretty applicable in your case. :)

I just installed one of those, the included instructions were great. If you don't install all the wires you will not have proper function of the lighting.

You really need an ohm meter to test the wires you are connecting to. My video shows those wires behind the dash and main light switch but it is on a daily video with the past 60 days.
