On my 97, the positive wire for the back up lights is violet/black. Don't know if that helps you or not.

Be careful when you wire up more lights to the existing wiring for the backup lamps. The wiring is small 16ga, and is not built to handle the load of extra lamps. A separate switch,relay,fuse and wiring should have been used. Just sayin.
