    so only when the door is open this wire becomes live. does it stay live until you shut the door or does it go off when the instruments go off?

    The grey / yellow wire is the switch illumination wire. It becomes live when the headlights are on or the door is opened, but only to illuminate the switches. Not sure what wire becomes live when the interior light is on if any

    I don't see why there shouldn't be one. I don't even know where the door switch is that turns the interior light on. If you could find that then you can take a feed from that wether it's positive or negative, and add the permanent connection to the other contact on the light (opposite polarity to the door open contact)
