There are "day time running lights" that use the turn signal bulbs that are inboard of the headlights. Those were an option on an 06. Most likely you don't have those. (turn signal bulbs on constant until you turn the signals on, then one bulb flashes while the other side stays constant)

There are also "parking lights" on the outside edge of the headlight assembly. They come on with the tail lights when you turn the headlight switch one click from the off position.

If you want your aftermarket lights on the roof to come on at the first click from the off position on the headlight switch and stay on when you turn the low or high beams on also, you would tap into the "parking light" or "tail light" fuse. Not sure how its marked, but it's located in the fuse panel behind the coin tray to the left of the steering column.

Let us know when you start blowing fuses or burn your wiring harness out.

I hope you aren't installing larger fuses.
Aux lighting needs to be on it's own fused supply switched by a relay.
You can actuate the relay from your headlights or DRLs or a switch, but running the lights directly is asking for BIG problems.
