Default Door Lock Wiring Diagram

I purchased a power tailgate lock for my 2011 Dakota. The instructions do not tell what wires I need to tap in to. I know that I need to tap in to the door lock and unlock wiring. I have looked on the internet and had no luck finding a clear answer.
Any ideas on where I can find this?

You want the tailgate to lock and unlock every time you lock and unlock your doors?

That is correct, by using the remote and/or the door lock in the truck.

I am trying to install a power tailgate lock on my 2011 Dakota. It has to be wired in to the door lock/unlock wiring. The instructions it came with are vague and do not specify what color the wires are. I have looked on the internet and had no luck finding a clear answer. Any ideas?

Not sure if the colors have changed, (probably so), but here is the 05 Dakota door lock.

Something to keep in mind, sometimes these aftermarket lock solenoids take a lot more power than the factory lock circuit can handle through the lock switch. If you don't have enough power (it may make your normal locks sluggish or not work at all) you will have to wire up two 5 pin relays to deliver more power to the aftermarket actuator.
