Wiring question

I am trying to install a Kisan tailblazer deceleration and running light for the luggage rack brake light onto an 05 LT. It is a plug and play set up but I have to tap into a hot a hot wire also. I'm planning on tapping into the rear lighter plug, but wanted to make sure which wire to tap into. There are several brown wires and several green and purple wires. My question is can I tap into any one of the green/purple wires for a hot source?

Thanks,
Brian

Thanks for the help! I tapped into the rear heat (green wire) and I'm still not getting the running/brake light to work properly. Checked fuse to heated seat. it's OK, can't figure out what the problem is!

Use a volt meter and check for 12 VDC. Fuse may be good but other factors are involved. Is the key in the on position, sure you picked the switched hot for the seat, what method did you use to tap the wire (scotchlock, solder, butt splice)? Also, not sure about Kisan's unit but many such accessories are polarity sensitive.

I figured it out, I just had a loose connection where the Kisan plugs into the brake light. I feel stupid! Thanks to everyone with the help!!
