    If the wire is plain brown (no stripes) then this is indeed ground / Chassis / Earth

    Red is permanent 12 volt supply and Black if you have one is for ignition live.

    right your wires are as follows : -

    green - to GID display pin 17
    white - to GID display pin 18

    red to +12 volts
    brown to 0 volts / ground

    green with brown stripe to CDC40 pin 31
    blue with red stripe to CDC40 pin 32
    unknown colour (shield) to CDC40 pin 38

    hope that helps

    note there are two shields that are linked together and then run to pin 38!!.

    one from each black shrowded pair.

    the red goes to fuse FI1 - 20 amps at the end of the dash. same as the radio.
