Question: Which wire on the parking lamp is the parking lamp harness and which wire is the signal light?

I am upgrading my headlights to the projector headlights with halos. And the halos has to be linked into the parking lights. But, I don't know which wire is the parking light and which is the turn signal. Blue or Brown. Thanks in advance

But if you're planning on doing work in the future to your vehicle, investing in a paper repair manual is the way to go.
