    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
    Scratching my head with 3 wires.
    Ground an apply 12 volts to the 3 wires one at a time. Good Luck
