Emergency Back door wiring

Okay I made a mistake taking out the wiring for the back door, now the back up lights won't light when I put the bus in reverse. If I touch the red and purple or the orange and purple the lights come on and the back up alarm sounds while the bus is in Neutral and off. Can anyone help me? The four wires are shown in the photo, disregard the blue wire hooked to the black wire in the back is for the back up light.

I can't help you on this and I know it's too late to tell you this but always label your wiring before removing. You should ask to move this to mechanical section.

Well, I'd get a test light and see what has juice. Then I would see what has juice while the bus is in reverse. See which one has juice when it buzzes.
