    Anyone have any ideas on how to tap into the ambient lighting power supply. I am working on a lighting project that I want to work only when the ambient lighting comes on.

    Any ideas are much appreciated!

    There might be a fuse for ambient lighting you can piggyback on.

    Fuse box diagrams only seem to outline a single 30A fuse for "lighting: exterior/interior"... May not be an option, unless I'm missing something.

    Awesome! Looking forward to seeing how you did it. Please take photos during your tear down and tap project!
