Little bit of info there... someone else asked the same question a little while ago.

Best bet would probably be the dome light.

Nope, only IGN key illumination - the XH XR's get footwell lights (this is bit of a turnaround).

Get your 12v off the door actuator yellow wire, get your earth off the courtesy switch for that door - means you only need to run 1 wire through the door loom conduit.
Trade off is they won't fade when the door is closed - if you want fade, get your 12v from the yellow/green IGN illumination light (runs down the steering column).
