The best place to pick up the wiring is the A pillar switches.
Either drivers or passenger door.
There are two wires into door switch that operates the interior lights.:-
Green/yellow - has 12v on it via the Clock/Courtesy Lamp fuse in the fuse panel.
Black/Blue - goes to the lamps.
If you use a standard relay this will have pins 85, 86, 87, 30.
Wire pins 85 and 30 to earth (chassis)
Wire pin 86 to the Black/Blue wire
Pin 87 will provide an earth for connection to alarm door trigger.
If another 12v relay type.
Connect black/blue to one side of the coil and chassis to the other side.
Connect one side of a normally open contact (relay not energised) to chassis and the other side to the alarm trigger.
When the door opens, the relay operates connecting the trigger to chassis (-ve).
