This is how I done it only because Using one diode/trigger does not always work on some vehicles...This way uses 8 diodes and 4 resistors. There are details on how to install them in detail in the blink below.

Vinchinzo, the diagram you're using has nothing to do with the OP or the original vehicle.
You're showing a Ford/Mazda/Volvo NC circuit.
As for Toyotas with time delay on the dome light, I've always gone to the switched domelight feed with no problems.

Ah clever me, I just went to that post.
Having said that it was a really good post well done!
Just remember how differently wired, some vehicles are to others.

To answer both questions;
a) Could be WHITE/ red the place to look is the steering column loom test as the door triggers when you turn on the headlights it's NEG (-) switching.
b) What you've described for the door trigger is NEG (-) switching.
With the doors closed the circuit is grounding through your DMM hence 12V+.
Here comes the blasphemy;
Use an incandescent bulb test light, e.g. Snap-On CT-42 or MAC equivalent.
On the above AND Toyota lock triggers it's far quicker than using a DMM.
Virtually every pro when they know a particular car will use that method rather than a meter.

So far, alarm is working. Tomorrow I just need to dress the wires, connect the doors to the alarm and put a fuse to the siren.

2006 toyota sienna ? does anybody here know how to disable the airbag and remove it? I'm afraid to touch the airbag coz it might deploy. I need to access the wires under the steering column. Thanx

 I just noticed that I mentioned the "doors" on my 1st post that might be misinterpreted. I meant connecting the power door locks. Thank You

Disable airbag? Yes but why?
You won't have to remove the steering wheel there are probably 2 screws facing you UNDER the hub securing the steering column cover (cowling).
Turn on engine and turn the steering wheel to access them.
