    Does your existing light have a switch so you can turn the light on with the doors closed? If not, it likely only has 2 wires because it is switched power and ground. The Suburban one has a switched power for the dome, ground, and constant power for the map lights. You'd have to get it constant power for the map lights to work properly.
