2010 Focus puddle light install.

Hey guys. I'm a Jeep guy but the wife has a focus, 2010 SE nothing special. However she is a big fan of captain america (we are pretty immature) hahaha. I found puddle lights from Mr. Kustom of Captain America shields, showed them to her and now I have the door panel off and trying to figure out how to wire them. Obviously I would like them to come on with interior lights when she opens the door and shut off when you shut the door.

After searching on here and a few other forums I can only find some info on the newer model focus (sorry I don't remember what years but I know it's newer than the second gen 2010).

I found that the door latch is what controls the interior lights instead of a momentary switch and found four wires going to the door latch assembly inside the door. Pic included.

I'm wondering though does anyone know if those are just signal wires to turn the lights on and where I could get power and a ground from hopefully inside of the door but I'll try and snake some wires back inside the cabin of the car.

Let me know what you guys think any help would be awesome.
Happy Easter to everyone also!
