It must have come with a manual to give you a clue. I would imagine 1 wire is earth and another will run to the globe. Can you pull the globe out at the back and continuity test the wires to work it out, that would be the easiest.

I just went and had a look at a swoosh tacho i had lying around mine has 5 wires coming from it:

These 3 wires are connected to the rear PCB board:
red = 12v
blk = groun
green - tacho pulse

These 2 which i assume are the illumination and seem to be connected to the outer edge of the tacho
red = illumination wire (tap into ciggi light power)
blk = ground
