Sound pod light switch

I'm looking to add a switch to both of the sound pods so that people in the back seat can turn on their individual dome light when needed. Does anyone know If there are any constant or switched hot wires running to these pods or will I need to run a supply to both sides? Thanks

You already have constant power to both lights from the pink/white wires from fuse 26 in the PDC. What turns them on is grounding the yellow/orange wires through the cluster when you open the doors or switch them on at the light switch on the column. You will need to supply ground to simple 2 wire on-off switch & remove the existing yl/or wire at the each light socket. Of course that will mean that they won’t come on when you open the doors or turn the light switch. If you want both functions then you can use 3 wire 2 position on-on switches with the added ground wire to one of the end terminal & the existing yl/or wire to the other end terminal & a new wire from the center terminal to the light socket where the yl/or wire is now. That way in one position the lights will function as they do now & moving the switch to the other position will turn the light on.
