    reverse light wires

    I have a 2012 sportback (62 plate 138 DTI sport) which has light clusters in the boot (including reverse!) as well as the main car body. I am planning to fit a parking sensor (meta targa) and since the reg plate is in the boot I hope it won't be too difficult a job. I have seen 'how to's' on how to remove the trim but I need to tap into the reverse light power supply. There are 4 wires going to this 'light': in order left to right looking towards the rear on passenger side: blue and red, brown, yellow and white, blue and red. I need to tap into the power supply and an earth. Any help on which is which would be much appreciated. Has anyone tried this sensor on an a3 - is it any good? I had it fitted to my previous car (vectra ) and it was excellent.

    thanks

    Connect the wire to earth then the other, after putting car in reverse, touch each wire with the remaining wire and see which is live.Or use a multimeter.
