Default Wiring Question

I know this is the 850 forum, but since the S70 is so much like the 850, and this forum gets more traffic than the S70 forum I'll ask here too.

My son wants to install a backup camera on his 98 S70 T5. In order for it to come on when the car is in reverse, the camera needs to be powered by the reverse lights. Can someone tell me which wire on the connector is the hot wire for the lights when in reverse. I don't have a wiring diagram, and I suppose I could try to probe with my volt meter, but I figured it would be easier to ask here first.

Thanks in advance,

Glenn

I am not near my '98 but according to the wiring diagram it's blue. Also you'll see it's the one that doesn't connect to all the other bulbs.
