im replacing my old non motorized screen with a new motorized one but ran into a problem with the install. the new monitor has 4 wires :
grounding
12V/Now and again
12V
0v

right now i have a 12v wire and battery ground that i tapped from the cigeretter lighter which used to power my old screen.

mean?

You should have;

yellow wire (to 12V source)
red wire (accessory power, only comes on when car is on)
black wire (ground)
and possibly an orange wire, which would be for auto dimming.
Let me know what color the wores are and I can help you out more. Also, brand/model would help a lot.
