Security light wire location?

I am wanting to tap onto the security light wire, so I can use AAC's nite rider light bars as a security light, I just do not know where the wire is, I am hoping I can just tap on under the driver side near where I am tapping onto the dome light (which I found here, Thanks TonyNo, greatly appreciated). I tried searching and came up with this, but I did not see what I need. Any and all assistance is most definitely appreciated. Thanks ahead of time.

Yeah I wanted to do something like this too...perhaps reversing the polarity of an ignition source with a relay or something along those lines...

will that allow the nite rider light to work until I unlock the vehicle? If so where is that wire located?

If that would work i am game, just need a bit of guidance on doing to (ex. where do i need to tap onto, if a relay is needed, and what not)

I havn't tried it personally but that is the first I would check, it is the pink/black wire under the drivers console, above the gas pedal. The only problem I see with this is it will also turn it on while the ignition is on, so it might not work to plan, but I would want mine to be on while driving

it has to be a wire that gives power when the alarm is on just like the light in the dash.

Right, I don't think the power lock wire will work because I'm fairly certain it is just a pulse signal. The ignition wire will work but it's not really a full solution because you want the light on when the car is armed not just when the ignition is off...

I quickly scoured through the wiring info but I didn't see anything that I would think would be on when the car is armed...but it has to be there! Maybe someone with a service manual can help us out?

That would be FANTASTIC!! Anyone got a service manual that would be so kind to share the wealth?!?

Well I got a fast answer but it was not what i was looking for.


Wizzer

Sorry that's not my dept . I don't deal with the wiring group.


----- I guess it was a long shot but I have a nice snap on tool that lets me poke the wire and see if it is hot. I am going to go out in the garage and check around. I feel this might be a challenge.

Apologies for having a question that has a rather difficult/tedious answer, but your efforts will most definitely help others, I greatly appreciate the time and effort you are putting forth.

Well I went out a poked around the fuse box and they are all hot as expected being the fuse box. I then poked a few wires under the dash as best I could constantly testing them with the car armed and unarmed. I get the feeling the parts we need is behind the dash and up there deep. I even went so far as to listen for relays moving or clicking. Nothing. I will ask the guy if he has any contacts in that department but based on his short answer I am thinking he is a busy guy.

You need to poke around and test the pins on the BCM (under dash). We need something that is hot when the alarm is on and not when its unarmed and only when its unarmed. I'd do it but my cars not here yet :(

Sounds like a lot of work and time, thanks for all that work

What do you mean? Is there a light for the factory system?

Well all I know for sure is the little dome in the middle of the dash blinks when the alarm is on. I'd like to trace that wire but it would mean dash removal.

I was hoping it wouldnt resort to that... I do appreciate all the time and effort that has been put into this inquiry thus far.

Here's the wiring diagram. I just received my service manual today. The LED is part of the ambient light sensor.

Ludicrously AWESOME! Muchos Gracias!!!! Mui Bueno!! Ok, so this is what I am gathering...you are saying that the light that blinks while the car is locked on the center of the top of the dash, the power for that is coming off of the ambient light sensor from the gray block under the driver side, and the wires is on the 21 position on that block? So do I actually need to find the black wire that branches off of the ambient light sensor? I will have to see about tinkering with that as soon as i can, and I will post pics of install once I get some time may be this weekendish, if all goes well.
