    Ummm, orange and brown those should be for the lights.
    Oh wait Orange is constant hot, like the dome light.
    ON the stock head unit you could push one of the knobs and the clock would come on. I think that is what that was for it's the constant hot!

    i put a stereo in mine awile back, cant remember exactly, but i think the one is hot and the other is a dimmer. the one stays hot to keep your stereo presets and clock.just use a test light to find out.
