I'm guessing that you are right, but a test light or meter would tell you for sure...Mark

Behind the dash, solid orange is headlight on hot, meaning hot only when light switch is on.

If you look over the harness, usually around the heater control/radio area, there is an orange duckfoot connector with unused holes. You can tie in there using bullet style connectors.

Will be hot anytime dash lights are on, so when parking lights or full headlights are on.
