License plate light mishap..

Hey all,
Recently installed a back up camera in where the left license plate bulb lives because the housing for it was snapped in half so I thought might as well put something useful there. My problem is I foolishly cut the wires without paying attention to how it was wired as I was excited to get this back up camera going.. I also cut the right license plate holder out as it was green/blue copper corroded. Does anyone know how they get ganged back up? it's 2 gray 2 brown on one side and only 3 wires on the other, since I cut the cables my trunk release at the lip does NOT work but if I use my key button it DOES work. Need help figuring out how to wire it back together so it works and I can get rid of my light warning. If anyone knows how it's wired or has pictures of the wiring it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks all
