Hi and welcome to Justanswer.

Initially, can you give me sample photos of your connection and parts that you need to install?

Thank you for your reply, here is a pic of the new colored wires attached to the gauge in the background, In the forefront of the picture is the colored wires that I need to pair with the colored wires on the gauge.
I can not past the image at all from my IPad, but here is what I have as my stock wire harness that I need the new gauge wires to match up to,

Honestly this is so hard because I don't want to take a risk on your wires. Did you have multimeter and try to check the resistance on every wire. The common wire is black which is ground.
