Default Wire colour for reversing lights?

I am installing an after market set of reversing bumpers sensors in a 2012 Kia Rio (Australian model) and I need to splice the power supply wire from the unit into the wire for the reversing light in the rear light cluster on one side of the car at the rear.

There is a 5 wire plug with the following wires going to the rear left light cluster:

- 2 x yellow
- 1 x black
- 1 x green
- 1 x red

I am not an auto-electrician and I am not sure which wire goes to the reversing light. If need be I'll cut (and reconnect) them one by one until I find which one powers the reversing light, but if somebody knows it'd be a great help!
