I know you posted this a long time ago but if you are still checking back this is what I have done in the past. I find the wire that goes to the light in the radio and tap into that. A lot of times this is a single wire (orange in older Mopars). In most everything I have had this light comes on with the dash lights. This works for most older vehicles. Newer ones may present a different problem. In that case I would try and find other dash light circuits or maybe go into the fuse box and find a fuse that is labeled as such and tap into that wire.
