Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be glad to assist you. Do you have a 2 wire voltage tester? We need to verify the wires.

No

I can make a guess as to the wires but should test. Volt/Con testers are available at any home center for around $20.00. It would be wise to get one for this job and anything in the future.
