Need help to fix LEDs below dash board

Hi Folks,
Hope this is the correct place to post this.

2007 model WRX Impreza. (right-hand drive)

I would like to fix 2 Red LEDs below the dashboard on both the driver and front passenger's side of the car so that when either door is opened, both LEDs will light up.

The problem is, I do not know where to locate the wires to the switches of the two front doors that control the light on the back of the passenger compartment (which lights up whenever the front doors are opened)

This is where I want to tap the connections from.(i.e. the door switches)

Can anyone kindly show me the way.

Appreciate all the help.

Thank you.

Re: Need help to fix LEDs below dash board

when you open your door you will see the switch that shows your door is open, take this off the passenger side door (this is because the drivers door has your key in ignition warning buzzer on it as well ) and see how many wires go into it. find the one showing 12v there shuld only be one anyway. when this touches earth eg through your door switch it will have 12v and therfore turn on the light.
what you need to do is tap off this but i recommend you use a relay otherwise you will probalby find fuses blow left right and centre..
if your unsure on wiring up a relay halfords have a kit for this kind of thing (about a fiver)
