+12v is yellow/green, needed for domelight and reading light power, black is earth, black/blue is the domelight fading line.

So simply match them up, use one of the mounting screws for the black wire earth.

you shouldn't f**k any thing up any way. If you mix the wires up you'll blow a fuse at worst
