Speaker bar dome light question

I've read a few threads how to wire it but I can't really find what I'm looking for
I bought a speaker bar in eBay for 60$ not a bad deal including shipping
Wired up the speakers, they work great. Now the only wire I have left to use is the pink wire

What should I wire it into? Or do I need to splice into something?
Completely lost in how do this and managed to blow two fuses in the process lol

hopefully you have 2 wires, one hot one ground. depends on how you want it to work, some sound bars have an on off switch on the light and you can just wire it into a hot wire. mine didn't so I wired it into the interior lights on the passenger side. I took my test light and found the wire that was hot when the door was open, dead when closed, I just spliced into it then grounded the other wire to the body. the light works when the door is open and also with the switch.

No I only have one one wire which is pink and the dome lights have switches

Post up a picture of where your wire enters the sound bar. There has to be another wire somewhere. Lol

There has to be a way to ground it somewhere.

Maybe PO cut it out. You could ground it yourself and run a wire to the rollbar. That's what I had to do with mine

Then just tie the power in with the power from your radio and run it along with your speaker wires. Or to a cigarette lighter or something.

Could you just run it into the other pink wire? How would I go about making my own ground where on the sound bar where would I put it?
