Use of courtesy time out

Planning to get a set of dual white and amber LED's to mount on the step rails

I got the Ambers figured out to be running and turn signals.

What I am struggling and looking for some help is that I want to have the white LED's come on just until I get to the vehicle and then shut off

Thinking of using the courtesy timer circuit for that but have no clue where/how to access

The other option is using a control signal that I would tap off when the vehicle is removed from park

Help in either of those plans or suggestions for another method are greatly appreciated

Not sure about the XLTs but on the Lariats there are unused connectors for running board lights you can tap into. Up under the truck, maybe two-thirds the way back the length of the running boards.

I installed while LED lights above the running boards, and they come on with the courtesy lights, and fade out with them as well. Here's a vid:
