Need help finding the courtesy light wire behing the glove box

A buddy and I have been trying to install some flexible LED oracle strips down at my floorboards and we tried to hook up the light to the fuse box and they would not cut off with the courtesy lights after you lock the car. We tried hooking it up to other fuses such as the ignition switch starter and the radio but as soon as the positive touched the box they came on and wouldnt cut off. So we asked a neighbor for some help and he looked behind the glove box and tried to find the wire that goes with the courtesy lights but every wire he tested didnt turn the test light off. Need help finding the wire. Thanks

Why not tap the positive wiring, at the courtesy light. Run the wire to the LED lights, and ground the lights on the body near the LED lights.
Just a suggestion, in case you can't find the wiring behind the glove-box.
