One is the 12v constant. That is the one on its own.

Take a feed from this for your POSITIVE.

One of them is a switched earth which is earthed when the doors are open.

One of them is a constant earth used when you manually switch on the light.

Personally, I have taken a feed from the 12v constant and then taken the earth from the actual bulb holder. That way when the bulb comes on for whatever reason (door open or manually) the footwell lights will come on :)
