Question Lost in translation electrical color key

Hi,

I have drawn the short straw and have a 2001 156 2.0 jts that came in with multiple issues. I found software online and purchased a service manual but all the wiring colors are in italian without a key to their color in english. The manual is in english, and the only engine management wiring is limited to the "smart box" version of the vehicle, and I have a manual trans car, there are tracks omitted, ie, heated 02 sensors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

TIA S West

Does it show the colors with names or only letters? For example, 'B' or 'bianco'? (white) 'V' or 'verde'? (green) 'N' or 'nero'? (black)

If you have names then google can easily translate for you.

M is Marrone = brown
V - Verde = green
B - Bianco = white
N - Nero = black
G - Giallo = yellow
A - Azul = blue
R - Rosso = red
Ro - Rosa = pink
Z - forgot = violet
C - forgot this too = orange

Two letter combinations are striped wires. Example; RN would be a red wire with a black trace.
