this is taken directly from the diagram I posted above.
if it is the same configuration as the one you have.
_ _ 1 2
_ _ 3 4
_ _ 5 6
l l 7 8




1,2 = 12v constant power source(fused)
3 = door closed wire
4= no connection
5 = door open wire
6 = 12v lamp positive terminal
7 = 12v power source from the switch
8 = ground


all the info should be there between the two write ups to make this work
