Where to wire in ambient footwell lighting?

I have a pair of ambient footwell lighting (CCFL). Anyone know where to tap in to 12v to have them go/off with the dome lighting? I want them to come up when I unlock the doors or when the door is open and then go off with the normal dome light.

Ooh! Finally looks like we may be able to not run a wire to the dome lamp!

Do we know where K9 physically is?

Looks like the BCM (K9) is located to the right of the steering column, above the accelerator pedal.

Just remember that you do this stuff AT YOUR OWN RISK. If something happens it might effect some parts of your warranty .

Ok, so what wire is it that we tap into for the light connections?

Oh thanks for schematic

so I think we just connect the alimentation of light with the 156 WH wire in K9 block, and connect ground wires together.

I looked all over for the hot wire to the dome lighting - in the end I ran that wire direct from the Dome light - follow this thread for info:

Bah. I can't see any connector numbers on, what I think is, K9.

Assuming that this is K9, it's looking like the grey connector on left in that photo is X7. Can anyone confirm?

To be sure, have you got on X7 a 156 WH wire on the connector 19 and a 157 GY wire on the connector 1 ?

According to the "wiki" electrical system, it is a grey wire going into the BCM grey plug, pin #1. The BCM is located under the driver side dash and above the accelerator pedal.

Don't hold me responsible, but this is what I'm seeing and hope it helps out.

Boo! The wire tap I used didn't make a good connection, so I pulled it out to regroup. There is very little slack in the harness, so getting it in there was not fun.

As far as pics go, the one above is about as good as it gets. I'll see what I can do for a better angle.
