Brown is ground, and the others are for raising or lowering. Not sure which
wire does which, so you may have to dicker with them. Now, is there a relay
involved in this? Would seem to me that there should be, since the switch
is of a rotary nature, and the motors are actuated for a pre-set travel
distance when the dial is turned to position 1, 2 or 3...

Some old Audifans postings related to the topic (except the motors):
And Huw added the following details:
As a small addition, ground wires will be brown, and the low beam should
be yellow & yellow/black, the high beam white & white/black.

I'm installing eurolights and would like to include the motorized
adjusters. I have the euro lights, motors, wiring harness and switch so it
all looks pretty straightforward. The car is an 1987 5ktq, but I don't
what model year the harness came out of. The one thing I'm hung up on is
connecting this harness into the stock U.S. wiring. Of course the Bentley
wiring diagrams don't show this because this was a strictly euro feature
AFAIK. Maybe headlight motors came to the US on other models (maybe the
V8?) but I don't know.
The harness has a three point plug and I need to connect these 3 wires into
the stock wiring somehow. It has yellow (Y), brown (BR) and black
(BK) wires. I think BRN = ground, Y = power ... BK = I don't know.
Could someone tell me the function of the BK wire? What to connect these
three wires to?
