By PIAAA, I'm assuming driving lights or fog lights? That will overload your tail light circuit if you stole power from that.
Gotta use relay to handle load current of your PIAA. Supply power directly from battery via inline fuse.
Wire it this way - Using switched ground control, consistent with most Toyota control circuits.
If you want it only on only IF ignition is on
, take positive power for control (relay coil) from cigarette lighter circuit, since it's already under dash.
IF you wanton only if tail lights are on
, tap control wire positive from front marker positive in front corner fender, near marker light. Example of tap on first gen
Look at your schematic to verify what color wire to tap from, other wise you could have blinking fog lights
