I believe the OP is rferring to the plug with the orange and brown wires on it. orange is constant power (memory) which is necessary. brown is display dimmer, which is not used in aftermarket radios (cap it) and is not necessary for operation for stock radio (it dims the display when you turn on headlamps but other then that it has no purpose)
