How do i...?

i have a prefacelift sedan, thats the 6pin connector taillights.
i have LED taoillight, and its setup there i can connect a bulb holder and have the inner taillights, the ones on the trunk, below the reverse light, i can have those lit up. but as you all know thats someone they did with the facelift sedans, not the prefacelift.

so my question is, is there a way i can tap into the 6 pin connector and wire it to the taillight and get that inner trunk light to work.

or will i have to run a wire from the corner taillights into the trunk and then to the light.

or get a facelift bulb holder, and somehow wire it to my 6 pins factory connection.

how can i do this?

just tap the wire from the parking light bulbs that go on the bottom of your preface tails. the ones that are only one when the parking are on and don't get brighter. that's all you need to do. sorry i can't get you a specific wire off the top of my head, so you're just have to play with it

the parking light wire from the 6 pin connector. which ever one lit up the bottom bulbs of your preface tails. that's the one you want to use. from the LCM, it's the grey with purple line, iono if that's the same for the connector. you might have to search for it.
