My observation is that often there may be some color code within a specific model and year, but not even within a given manufacturer. And wires with color stripes sounds like a connection code within a specific system, such as radio or door locks. So you need a meter.
If the connections are for speakers it is important to not connect either one to anything else, such as the chassis or even another speaker lead.

Was catching-on-fire a feature?
Actually it was!
Before they caught it, the XJS had rubber hoses on the motor to the fuel injectors that after some time could rupture.
It was an insurance right-off, it was quite the challenge to rebuild.
