    Hi all,

    I have small project that I would like some help with :) , I have a small van/truck that has three loading doors, it has one small dim light that doesn't work very well in the back.
    I have bought two 12v led lamps that I will be fitting in the rear so I can see what tools i'm picking up in the dark, now, what I would like to do is have a small push button next to each door, that will turn the lights on/off, so say i open door 1 and turn the lights on, if i walk away and then come back and open door 3, i can turn the lights off using this button.
    I'm thinking some sort of logic circuit possibly, but have no idea where to start, I would appreciate any comments/suggestion, would there be an easier way to accomplish this?

    heres how it can be done with two switches ,some 3 core cable and your spots so it will give you switched on or off led spots with two switches in two different locations.....
