Help with what wires to tap on an 08' SE for flip down monitor power

I purchased a 12.1" xtrons dvd-less over head flip down monitor
I was wonder were to tape into a power source in the overhead console for the monitor?

I looked over the factory service manual and found the pin out for the rear passenger audio controls the wires that look usable would be:
#7 - remote (yellow) or #8 - enable (red)

Does anyone know if one of these would work for power? If not where did you tap into power at for the monitor?

More info the car
2008 SE model: no bose, nav, or oem dvd player/screen option.

Still looking for some help on this one if anyone has input. I tapped into the power and ground for the rear a/c control and it didn't not work out. the screen wouldn't power on and it stopped my rear air to stop working until it was disconnected. I need a better known working power and ground source to tap for a flip down screen in the over head console.

Looks like im just gonna have to run a line to a cigarette outlet for 12v acc and ground out on the chassis or run a line to inside fuse box using an add-a-circuit from auto part store. I will update if i get it working and then post a diy for the install as well. Still looking for input if anyone has some on this install.

I tried to look through the factory manuals for an helpful suggestion, but I've been busy at work.

I have already gone through it and since my 1st attempt when I tapped into the a/c controls and the issue that caused I went with an add-a-circuit and will get it wired up tomorrow. I will follow up if it works out.

Got it all working. Went with the add-a-circuit option, ran the power wire over and down the b-pillar them under the kick panel to the fuse box. Grounded to bare metal on the roof frame. Still need to hook to the automatic map lights.
