Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Do to the way modern electrical systems work there aren't any items on the headliner harness that receive a switched power feed. The sunroof module and DVD screens receive a constant power feed and are woken up with a CAN bus message. I've gone through all the circuits in the A pillar connector and don't see any switched power feeds unless it's a right hand drive export, which I'm assuming isn't the case.

Is there a reason you're tied to the A pillar?

How about under the dash around the steering column?

At the wireless ignition node (where the key is inserted or the start button is) there is a pink/white wire that will have power only with the key on.
