You need to check the output wires on the starter module. Many of them have about 2-3 ground output wires- that output at various stages of the crank cycle. But depending on the brand, these wires may output for the entire time the module is active or turn off after some time. You'd have to look into that. If you have a wire that is active the entire time, you can tap this into the ground light wire. I don't think it would matter, but I would diode isolate this wire just in case.

It's basically a one way valve for electricity. You would want to splice it inline with the wire you're connecting to the ground door wire. You want it to flow into the door circuit but not backwards into the module when the door is opened.
