So I bought a euro headlight conversion harness from tmtuning and am not sure where to stick which wires. The car has 3 wires coming out: Yellow/Black, Brown, and a White/Black. The conversion harness came with a white, , black, and a red. (there is also a green for city lights or something) Please help me out. Any knowledge is appreciated.

City lights come from the side marker lighting.

Those colors aren't factory colors on the new harness. When I put my e-codes in I just tested each wire until I got it right.

For the US wiring the brown is ground. W/BK is high beam and Y/BK is low beam.

So it won't short anything out or do anything crazy if I just randomly test until I get it right?

Even if you do somehow short something out it will just blow the headlight fuse. You will be fine.
