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
