Wiring for Power Locks

I am installing an electric tailgate lock on my 2008. I want to hook it up to the passenger side lock wiring so that it will unlock when I press the buttonont he FOB twice just like the passenger door works. Question is what color wires do I need to tap into, anyone know?

Thanks

George

2007/2008 door harness connector

white/violet (pin 14)
gray/violet (pin 3)

If the lock logic turns out backwards after you hook it up, just swap the wires.

Just a heads up. That connector has some duplicate color codes, so be sure to verify using the pin #'s given.

It should be under the PS kick panel connecting the dash harness to the door harness that goes through the accordion boot to the door. Maybe about 1 1/2" square, 16 pin positions total.

Finally got around to making the final hookup. You were dead nuts on wire colors and pins.

Thanks again for your help.
