The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.
Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.
ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

My bet is that there's a relay at fault... but first: have you checked the fuses? the high blower speed draws a lot of power, so sometimes it's fused separately from the other speeds. This means that your fuse for the slow blower speeds could be blown. Also, because theblower draws so much power, you'd need a HUGE switch to switch it directly, so they use a low-power switch inside the car, and a relay (usually under the hood, but sometimes under a seat (check your owner's manual) to do the heavy work. These are often split the same way, with the high blower on one, and the slow on the other. These are the things that are easier to check, but it could just be that the switch is bad. Mid 90s Land rovers and Range Rovers have the same problem, where the only blower speed that works is HIGH, making the cabin sound like a wind tunnel... Just the switch. The switch can be a pain to replace if you do it yourself, but do check the fuses first, and see if you can find the relays. if the fuses are okay, and you find the relays, try to find the one that's for the fan and swap it out, it shouldn't be more than 3-4 dollars from an auto parts store, just bring in the old one to match it, or swap it for another relay that's nearby and has the same pins. If the swap works, just remember to get another relay, because the one you "borrow" from another circuit could be the door locks or the headlights or something else important....

I'ts not a transformer, it's a capicator and could be bad. call Harbor breeze with model (on top of motor assy) and they can sell you the correct one.
