Help needed on wiring with a 3position toggle switch? Answered

Hi I'm trying to create a circuit using a 3position toggle switch with the centre position being off, it's to control 2sets of light.
basically I got some mini rally lights for my car, in one position on the switch I want the outside lights to come on and then in the other position I want all 4lights to come on. Can some one help me out on how to achieve this?? I have attached a photo of some lights in the same position ill be having mine set out.

Depends on the type of toggle; On-Off-ON or Off-On-ON. I've attached a drawing for each. The black line is negative and the red,blue,green and yellow are positive.

With the lights it has a single wire for each set coming off the relay, so what do I do?? Sorry if I'm being a pain and the relay takes its own power source straight from the battery

I keep looking at this and I don't think it works, at least not without a diode.

You need TWO relays, treat the coils like the lamps here. Also you need a diode.
