Re: WHILE CLEANING IT THE LIGHT GREEN WIRE CAME...
If it is coming from the power cord, it is certainly a safety ground wire and is attached to the round pin of the AC cord.
It can be attached anywhere to the metal frame of the fan.
Its purpose is to drain off any leakage current from the motor or other part carrying line voltage to avoid having dangerous voltage occurring on parts you can touch.
If your house is equipped with Ground Fault Interrupters (GFI), this ground is a little less important since the GFI monitors the current in the high and low sides of the AC line and if there is any difference between incoming and outgoing currents, it will trip to protect against shock.

the black screw is the "common" so the hot wire or the colored wire (usually black or red) bringing power in goes on to the black screw and all white wires (neutral) get connected together. you need to verify which wire has constant power when all wires are disconnected and separated first.
*White wires all connected together separate of the switch
green screw = ground or bare wire
black screw = hot wire/ wire with constant power
silver screws = (switched terminals) black or colored wire from each device being powered (eg. light) per screw
1) Locate and remove sensor. The sensor is located under the drivers tail light. Unclip it from the body and then unplug it.
2) Bypass the tail light circuit. Connect the tail light signal wire (Green) to the tail light wire (Green w/ Red Stripe). I recommend using wire tap in squeeze connectors that way you dont have to cut any wires.
3) Bypass the brake light circuit. Connect the brakelight signal wire (Green w/ White Stripe) to the brake light wire (Red w/ Blue stripe) and the the 3rd brake light wire (Red w/ White Stripe). Again all three of these wires are to be connected together.
4) Throw away your broken Tail Lamp Failure Sensor Do not plug your sensor back in. Doing so will cause the annoying orange lamp failure warning light on your dash to stay on. Leave it unplugged ant the light will stay off.
5) Test your work Turn on your lights and make sure your tail lights work properly. Have a friend step on the brake pedal, and make sure your brake lights work properly as well. Dont forget to check the Third brake light.
If your old light was all plastic, as I suspect it was, there was nothing to ground. Your new light evidently is all or part metal. Fasten all the green/copper wires together and make sure the metal bar inside, if one, is also connected. Use a wire nut to make the connections. My preference is to attach a separate wire to the metal mount bar and then fasten all three ground wires together using the wire nut.
I hope this helps you ... Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com
This should replace any existing single pole (one location) switch. You have two wires on the pir, black and blue and then the ground. The black hooks to the hot or common wire. It may be black, but it will be the hot wire. The blue wire hooks to the wire going to the light. The ground hooks to the green or bare.
The parking brake wire for this unit is light green. Try connecting it the unit's ground wire (black) and test for video. If it does not show video when connected to ground, install a two wire toggle switch. Connect one wire of the toggle switch to the light green wire and and the other wire of the toggle switch to ground. In this manner you will be able switch the screen on and off when viewing videos.

So its a wagon? or I dont know what S/W is. If the license plate light works, the light failure sensor could be bad. It should be in the left rear corner area and have 4 wires. Green, Light Green, Yelow/Green and White/black. You should have power on the Green going into the box, and the Light Green out to the tail lights. If you have power on the Green, but no power on the Light Green, then the box is bad, either replace the box, or you can just connect the Green to the Light Green wire to get tail lights operating.
Your black wire hooks up to your fan. The blue wire hooks up to your light. And your white wires hook up with the white wires from the fixture, and the bare copper wire hooks up to your green ground wire. Please contact me if you need further help. Good Luck, and I hope this works for you. Jim
You should really invest in a $15 wire harness so you do not have to cut the factory plug. Instructions will be in the package - but in the event you dont have a factory plug due to theft - here is the vehicle's wiring color codes...
