White = Ground
Brown = Parking Light
Red = Flasher/Brake
Green = Reverse

Just did mine. Wish i would have written down the colors. Had to use a meter to find out which was which. Lights on key off gives tail. Lights off key on trans in reverse gives backups. Other is brakes. I got some 1.5 inch clear led's for reverse on ebay. For ground, drilled a hole in trunk tub side under carpet. Sanded paint inside and out, nut bold washers, paint over to prevent rust. Hope this helps.

Got the tail lights in but when I turn my turn signal on a buzzer goes off in steering column and the light lights up and doesn't flash. Brake lights and caution lights work. Any one know why?

I had a suzuki sami that did the "buzzing in the steering column thing" and signals didn't flash. It was that way when i bought it. Previous owner had put LED signals on. Changed the flasher and it worked fine. Don't remember what was different about the new flasher other than it costs a lot more...

^ Reason being is that LED's don't use a full 12volts like the bulbs do, they use a lot less and the flasher have resistors installed so not to fry the LED's.
