Default how to hook up a rear floor aux light

I decided to install an aftermarket auxiliary light to the rear seat floor area (without drilling holes).

the light was $6 at AutoZone.

attach [+] and {-} wires to the appropriate wires on the aux light, pigtail connect, then seal each connection with heat-shrink tape.

clean the back of the light and the mounting area with rubbing alcohol. Use strong double-sided tape and mount the aux light where desired.

for rear floor locations, the light’s wire can be run under the rear right seat. Tuck the wires into crevasses where possible.

continue to route the wire along the right side of the cargo area, then connect into the cargo light’s wiring.

aux light's [+] taps into the pink wire. its [-] wire taps into the greenish-yellow wire. apply electrical tape to the newly tapped wiring.

the aux light now turns on/off as the doors open and close.

Sounds like good directions for anyone wanting to do the same. Anykind of instructions are always welcome.

By the way, your using imagestation which isn't allowed any longer. A lot of us are now using www.photobucket.com (freebie)

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

Actually, the pictures did show up at one time...now there gone. Picture of the floor lamp and the wiring at the rear light. Try that last hosting site again...maybe you couldn't see it, but it showed up here. Imagestation (like BDD said) is the only one that people are having trouble with that I know of.
