Default 2000 Monte Carlo SS

Hi again:
Wife's 2000 Monte Cigarette lighter was burned out. She orders one. Original is Powered full time (with/without key on).
The one she bought has the two connections at back for me to hook up, BUT she bought one with a separate Red LED (Because she loves the red light and wants to have the red LED lit at night.
So: I have the original negative and power to hook up the cigarette lighter. But there is a separate Power and Negative for the LED. Where can I run the power so that the red light will only be powered at night? Hot side of the Headlight switch Maybe?

Anyone have a better suggestion/solution?

Any switched power source. That way when the car is on the light is on and when the car is turned off the light goes off
