: E36 Wiring Colour

Ok so I've figured out all the colours for my wiring harness... except for orange as the current head unit (aftermarker sony something or over) doesnt use it. Is the orange wire illumination wire? (it dims when the lights are turned on?)

Yes the orange is the illumination wire, I just hooked my new head unit up tonight.
