I am trying to install some door handles light that lights up when the door is unlock by the remote(alarm is disarm) like the dorm light in the car. Where can I tap the power from, easiest place without having to remove the roof cover to get to the dorm light.. Thanks..

This means you're drilling holes on the exterior door handle?? um....you might regret that in the long run, i dunno. You can draw power from your window switch because it's right there inside the door panel....but i still think it might be a bad idea..

Electrically, I would start and end at the under-dash fuse/relay box. Supply power using the white/blue wire, route it out to both doors, and return it using the green/red wire.

As for physical placement of the lights themselves, you're possibly thinking of mounting them on the inside of the door, near where the handle comes through? I don't believe it's a perfect seal, so I can imagine that some ambient light peeking through the cracks would be feasible.
