Yes you can. the best way is to wire them into the light that illuminates the coin bucket. Just tap those wires and bingo. But why not just wire them to a switch?

The coin bucket turns on with the parking lights. It's easier to tap the parking light wire from the harness in the fuse panel area.

ehhh, why do you want to do that? this will make the footwell lights be on ALL the time if the parking lights are on.

i've done this two different ways: (one is simpler and the other is a bit more complex but safer.)

the former involves pulling out your dome light and wiring the 12v+ lead to the yellow wire. i think there are two or three but either one should do the trick. then you just ground the footwell lights near wherever they lay. this also makes them fade with the dome light.

the latter involves a relay and the door trigger. i'll just link you to my write up instead of repeating myself: http://www.preludeonline.com/f60/write-up-footwell-courtesy-lights-236585/

I just reread the original post and taping any wires doesn't constitute "on when you want them". If only want them on when you want them then just wire a them to a switch and 12v source. Then you can flip them on whenever you want. Constant for even when the car is off or ignition when the car is on. Or do it Shimees way and only when the door is open. Depends on how you want to use it.

i've been thinking of doing that. but i'm too lazy to figure out how to wire up a momentary switch so it lights up when the glovebox door is open.

i came up with a plan on how to get a light housing in there (i got hold of a housing like the one in our trunks) just not how it would work. :p
