Default 08-14 Hatchback backup camera wiring question..

The camera I have taps for power close to the camera itself. So I need a spot close to the rear of the car, somewhere in the hatch itself preferably to tap for power. Can anyone give me any advice as to where/what I can tap for the power. Nothing I see is clearly red/black wires, so I wanna be sure before I tap into something.

Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Brad

I didn't think about that, but then again the camera would only have power when im in reverse? Eh.. I guess I wouldn't need to see behind me if Im not in reverse.

Are the power/ground wires red & black ?

I'd ground to the car... So black wire from camera connected to any bolt. Then red wire connects to the hot from light bulb. I'd unplug bulb and touch camera wire to each wires part..ie the base then the side. Whichever turns on camera, connect to that wire... Or, just run wires back to head unit. Very easy wire run and lots of posts on it.
