(99% rig are like this) If when the door is closed and your contact door switch is open you need to attach the new switch wires in series with either wire of the door switch.
My new Kwikee steps were installed as a replacement steps and I wired the second switch like above.
In short when the door is closed the switch is open.
When you open the door it closes and actives the power to the motor to go out.
Hope this clarifies a little.
