First make sure those wires are hot and ground continuously.
FWIW I used the old obsolete Sony rear camera coax for center wire positive, braided shield ground to the Voyager wireless camera.

If I remember correct Sony cameras ran on 5v. The other end should be terminated near or on old monitor if still installed. There should be 12v there to power the monitor. You could splice power together there ,but fuse should be changed to match the smaller gauge wire now used.

Solar powered backup camera

Six months ago I bought a solar powered backup camera that connects wireless to a color display (plug in cig lighter) in the cockpit for $169. Works flawlessly.
