Default Quick help for a electrical n00b

okay I wanna do something weird.. i wanna use a different light for when my alarm is activated. it's stock alarm. the light in the dash now is hella dim and with me bein unemployed im not goin to a dealer to get it fixed, so i'll just use a brighter one.

I was gonna mount it in one of the empty switch bays on the left of the steering column, next to my cruise switch. I have the WRX wiring schematics .pdf file and found the section for the keyless entry system with hook, but I'm drawing a blank. I've checked a few other sources and I believe the box for the keyless system is on the left side of the steering column under the dash. The light I have has a red and black wire running to a chip which then has a red black and yellow wire running from that. My guess is the chip is used to check for the signal on the alarm and then starts up the light.

I dunno which group of wires under the dash i need to get into and I'm basically starting out, but I've got my dad to help me who's done electronics and such and is pretty knowledgeable.
