Wiring Strobe lights need help!!!!!

Hey guys as the title states, I need help wiring these strobe lights.
I know its ricey, it doesn't look good on a bmw, etc, etc, but I need this done for a special reason and its temporary.

I bought this kit from pepboys.
http://www.pepboys.com/product/detai...440/?quantity=

What I am trying to do is to wire these lights similar to my angel eyes. I would like these strobes to come on when I press the unlock button, and turn off when I lock it. I dont need them to be constantly turned on while im driving, or flip the switch to come on/off. I have my angel eyes currently wired to my dome lights, and thats what I would to do with the strobe lights also. So I would leave the switch to the on position all the time, when I lock the car it will turn off just like my interior lights.

How can I accomplish this?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Might be hard to do it the way you want because all I see is a power and ground wire. If you tap those wires to a 12v switch power source and find a ground then you can control the lights with the adjuster anytime. As for it fading on and off, angel eyes do that because they have a trigger wire and relay, so unless you can get a relay and do some good custom wiring it won't happen.

As a MECP certified installer, I agree with SolidJake. It's not that it's impossible, just a matter of wiring. I've down this in my Truck and my Evo when I had it. As you can see by my post count, I'm new to owning a BMW.lol If you can wait a couple weeks, I'll actually give it a shot and see what I come up with.

just connect it with the dome lights. You wont need a relay for this.
