Help Installing lighting timer switch


Had an intermatic SS7 light timer switch go bad- replacing it with a GE 15086 digital 7 day timer switch. Switch is part of a three switch panel (two flip switches for indoor lights, and timer switch for front porch lights). Old intermatic had three wires- black, blue, and red. Red was not in use. Black and blue wires each connected to what looks like two black wires. That's it. New timer switch has 4 wires- black, red, white, and green. I know what to do with green- ground. But with just two black wires to connect to, not sure how to proceed with new timer black, red, and white wires... Can anyone help? Thanks

New switch needs a neutral connection. Look in the back of the box for a bundle of whites. Connect the white to the bundle.
