    Brake systems require a separate ground. Otherwise, it will try and ground through the other lights and they will go out.

    I would identify what each color wire does.
    If no separate ground wire, may be intended to be grounded to frame.
    Feel it should have more wires
    Tail
    Stop
    Right
    Left
    Ground
    Scratching my head with 3 wires.
    Ground an apply 12 volts to the 3 wires one at a time. Good Luck
