Trying to install illuminated door sill plates I bought from Ford the instructions said to tie into a gray/violet wire by the drive side windshield after removing the trim piece I couldn't find that color wire at the plug did Ford change the color code? Does anyone know the right color wire I'm looking for

I did find the wire but it goes to the brake switch on master cylinder. It runs off the body control module on lh kick panel. See pic

I believe the wire I'm looking for goes to the dome light I need the one that power the light when the door opens and turns it off when the door is closed, the instructions said a gray/violet wire under the trim molding on the driver side a-pillar after removing that piece and checking the wires there is no wire with that color I thinking ford change the color code, the instructions I have were printed in 2010

This is the wire that comes off the body control module that powers up cargo light and almost all interior lights. It is gray/violet this is the one you want. Remove the kick panel and you should see it running off of the body module. When you tap into it just make sure if you cut the wire to solder it back together with shrink tubing or however ford tells you to do it in the instructions. This is a 2013 wiring harness diagram.

Unfortunately you must not understand the last reply, that wire that is pointed out in the pic will turn on the sill light when you open the door it powers up ALL the interior lights I have no further suggestions.
