National Electrical Code definition, NFPA 70 2008 Article 100: Qualified Person. "One who has skills and knowledge related to the construction and operation of the electrical equipment and installations and has received safety training to recognize and avoid the hazards involved."

In Philadelphia, it is unlawful for anyone except an individual licensed by the City of Philadelphia to install electrical equipment and wiring.
Homeowners are not allowed to install wiring.
The owner of any property wherein any such installation is discovered shall be issued a violation by the Department of Licenses and Inspections.
The limited exceptions include replacing devices and fixtures at existing outlets.
Contact the Department of Licenses and Inspections for more information.

You are more likely to be killed by 120 volts than any other voltage [120 volts creates the PERFECT fatal current through the human body's electrical resistance!]
TURN THE POWER OFF WHEN WORKING!

It is obvious by your inability to read the wiring diagram that you are untrained by any standard.
As a rule, I don't do any design work for amateurs due to insurance and safety hazard risks.
In this case, however, since it is 12 volts, I don't think you are likely to electrocute yourself.
NONE THE LESS - do not use this timer to control any equipment which would be relied upon for life safety reasons. Don't use it to control an air jack for something you are going to crawl under and rely on it to provide safe support of the lifted item.
I HOPE I MAKE MYSELF COMPLETELY CLEAR ON THIS MATTER.
Any use which could possibly create a hazard should be designed by a professional willing to take responsibility for the design and installed by a professional.
