Just got my 2016 forte5 manual sx. Love the car. Has rear view camera but no backup 'beeping' sensors. Found hopkins has wired sensors put on back of rear license plate. Hard wired to a backup light.

Has anyone added such? Which color wire is hot, and which is ground to the backup light? And tricks to removing trunk lid inner to hide wires? Did you have to bore a new hole for wire passthru?

Thanks for any help, before i tackle this.

You do not have to drill. Use the licence plate holes to pass the wires through. There are 4 of them. At least that's what I recall.

As for the wiring - I am not sure, it has been a while since I looked there. Simply take volt meter and check in reverse...

Installed easily. Did make a 'hidden' hole behind the license plate tho. Looks and works well. Like it together with the backup camera that was already in car. Good value.
