Hook it back up and then pivot the light and you’ll probably figure it all out.

Thanks Rutager. I didn't realize the light is a rocker. So I attached the black wire to the switch, the door pin ground to the other end, and rocked it fore: light! Center seems to be off.
I attached the other brown wire ground to the other spade, which appears to be a ground on the light itself - rocked the light back and forth to the three positions - unfortunately, no joy for constant light. I exchanged the ground wires, and did get a constant light. I can live with that, but in my simplistic mind, since that lights up the light when connected to the light with constant power, when I hook up the constant ground to the ground of the light itself, should I not get a constant light?
Nonetheless, thanks again. At least I have an on/off switch and a entry light.
