Grab a $5 12volt test light & probe back of switch where wiring comes into switch, for wire that has power when you pull lights on. If that's when you want it illuminated. If you want it too go bright or dim with dash , poke wires until you find that one, while turning switch to bright dim, and test light will do same.
