PDC System 2001 740i

I installed a PDC system in my car. Rear bumper only. The final stage involves connecting to the reverse lights of the tail light. I know where the bulbs are my problem is, finding the wire that connects to it. Can anyone help me out here? Thanks

Should be the yellow with white wire on the driver's side by the tail light. If I recall correctly, the wire harness where I found it is clipped to the body by the tail light with a red plastic clip.

Talking That's the one!

Thank you very much. I didn't need to test every wire. Your help was very much appreciated. Again, Thank you I went on the passenger side though by the battery.

Nice! I couldn't recall how the battery side looked. I have my reverse camera video module where the CD player used to be (iPod used instead) so I went through the driver's side. Glad it worked out!
