I don't know which wire it is but if you get a test light you could find out which wire becomes live when you switch the lights on.

Test light comprises of 12v lamp in a hoder with two wires; one positive and one negative. Connect one wire to an earth point and connect the other wire to each of the wires you want to test in turn. Whichever wire lights your test lamp when you switch the sidelights on will be your live that you're after.

No test lamp? Multi meter then. Borrow one from a mate. Same thing; one wire to earth other wire to each wire in turn.

Good luck - hope you get it sorted!
