Can't ID wires in 1969 dash harness

I recently purchased a new dash harness from AAW. It's for a manual trans, tach and center fuel gauge with warning lights.

The wires I can't figure out are coming out of the passenger side of the harness. They are a single brown wire terminating with a spade connector and a set of orange and white wires terminating at a T shaped spade connector.

My factory harness is still installed so I have identified all the connections except these two that don't exist in my original.

Orange and white are generally on the dome/courtesy light circuit - orange hot, white ground. Possibly cig lighter. Brown could be a tach signal wire

Does it come off of the heater plug? If so it is for heater/AC. I used it to power my vintage air.

A picture of the spade terminal would help, I think it might be for glove box light (orange wire) White may go to door jamb switch for dome light operation.The AIM wiring diagram does show an Orange and Brown off the heater plug so that might be something as well.

Re: Can't ID wires in 1969 dash harness

Thanks for the replies, I called AAW and they told me that the orange and white wires are for the console courtesy lamp and the brown is for A/C control. Since my car doesn't have a console or A/C it looks like I ordered the wrong harness. I think I'll keep it in case I decide to add a console later on.
