Just like the lights in our Jeep. The door switch grounds the circuit when the door is open, thus turning on the lights. This is what I did...
I have a 3 way toggle switch.
Power for the lights come in the switch.
In position I power is sent out and to the door switch. It closes the circuit when the door is opened.
In position O they are off all the time, open circuit.
In position II they are always on. position II is grounded so I can turn the lights on at anytime.
You could do this same thing with your steps. Maybe when you are doorless run in position O. when you stop put it in position II and leave the Jeep. When you get back, back to position O.
