Any info about some spare wires I found?

I'm about to install a garage door switch/hack into the ashtray piece and looking for a power supply to tap into just so the switch would light up when i have my lights on. I found a light blue wire and brown wire just sitting underneath the ashtray(or what used to be - replaced with non-smoker's package). Wondering if anybody knows what these are and if i can use them for my purpose or i should just tap into another switch.

The window control switches i was going to tap into....well i'm having a tough time figuring out which wires to tap. The ones that physically correspond in location, one of the switches has two brown wires coming out of the same end and one blue on the other while the other switch has one brown wire coming out of the end and two blues on teh other end.

sorry if this is confusing(haven't set up camera yet) and thanks for any guidance!

EDIT - i just shoved bare ends of my new switch wire into the contact point of another switch so i could test it and still be reversible and everything worked so i'm going to leave it as is

I can't answer your question about the extra wires, but I can tell you that I did add a garage opener switch by adding a switch to the dashboard (replacing one of the blank spots to the left of the radio). I ordered a window switch from Porsche and put it in there. I then wired it into the garage opener which I stuffed back there. For lighting the switch, I just tapped off the lighting wires off another one of the switches in the dash.

I think I also saw a post here that showed a similar idea, but they located the switch at the bottom of the console near the seat heater switches.
