Color of the wire that goes to the door ajar switch in a Toyota Vios

Hello All a few questions here,
I was wondering what color the wire is that goes to the door ajar switch in a toyota vios( all models of toyota for that matter)? Sorry I don't know if this is the real name of this switch. And also would this wire be the same color in all toyota vehicles? The reason I ask is I work for a new small company that installs anti-theft Hydraulic wheel locking systems. Installation includes attaching a wire from our system to the door switch, the one with rubber the over it when the door closes. Rite now we need to remove the plastic moulding that covers the wiring going to the rear of the car to get at the back of this switch. If I new the color of this wire, we could maybe "jack" into this wire somewhere before it goes to that switch up near the fuse. This is going to be ongoing for I would need to know this for many other makes and models, but we just did an install of our system today on a toyota vios. Thanks in advance for any info. I am new to this so my terminology is off I am sure but I hope this is clear enough.

    I don't have diagrams for cars sold in the Asian market, so can't help you there. Seems to me that your company should invest in subscribing to a mechanic's database that would carry this type of information, or to get diagrams directly from the factory---since total accuracy would be very important.

    Sometimes businesses that install high-end sound systems will sell this type of diagram.

    Ok, Thanks for the info Mr. Shiftright. That's what I'll do then. I have been using the wrong search terms when I was looking for this through google. I'll definitely look into a mechanic database or getting this stuff from the factory. Thanks again.
