How to get new bezel switches to light up?

I got an Exploder radio bezel and it has a bunch of switches for options that my truck doesn't have. Is there a way to get these buttons to light up at night for the hell of it? (lol)

I'm thinkin I'd have to get the Ford harnesses and tap the correct wire behind the radio?

you'll need pigtails to plug into those extra switches in order to tap the dash power into the switch.
