It depends on how the switches you bought actually work; I did some google searching and couldn't find anything conclusive.

They may switch 12V to "the function" wire when the button is pressed. They may switch ground to "the function" wire when the button is pressed. Without better documentation your only way to know for sure is to buzz it out with a multimeter or test it with a simple circuit.

If the switch connects 12V to "the function" wire when the button is pressed, connect "the function" wire to your light and ground the other terminal of your light.

If the switch connects ground to "the function" wire when the button is pressed, connect one terminal of your light to the lighting circuit, and the other terminal of your light to "the function" wire.

Hope this helps.
