Hacking in a backlit keyboard (Lenovo)?

Hello all.


I have a lenovo p500 ideapad that I am trying to install a backlit keyboard in. Obviously, mine did not come with one.


This model did indeed come with both types of keyboards.


There is a separate ribbon on the backlit board for power....I assume thats what it is at least. 


I installed a new CD DVD connector board as that's where the backlit board draws its power from, but did not realize the connector on the MB is larger as well.


I do not want to replace the entire MB.


Since the non backlit board obviously has power going to it for the caps lock and num lock buttons, is there a way I might tap into that power source to power the new backlit board.


I do not mind if it is always on.


Would appreciate your insights!


Thank you kindly.
