Light sanding is for cleaning the surface. You get rid of the dirt and loose paint. Sanding is cleaning the surface of the old paint. The paint on the surface should be sanded. You should have the surface of the paint cleaned and some scratches on the surface for the new paint to hold on. Heavy sanding is to get rid of the old surface paint, at list most of all.
