Wiring a dome light

Is there a trick to wiring up a soundbar/dome light to work with the Jeeps light? Also, I am ordering the rear view mirror with map lights, it comes with a harness, but I would like to wire it to come on with the door too?

I tried to tie into the dome light wires and kept blowing fuses.. any input would be helpful

the door switch that activates the lights is opening or closing the ground if supply 12v to one wire of the light and connect the negative to the switched side of the door switch you should be ok, or just connect both wires to the wires in your factory dome light so it will come on with doors and turn of headlight switch.......good luck
