    Aside from ground, which two were the old fixture attached to? Dec 18, 2017 at 18:19
  • That red wire should be assumed to be hot or switched based on its color and should also be capped off. Don't leave it exposed.

    do a continuity check between "3 o clock" red-black as you operate the switch. Obviously be absolutely certain the power is off first.

Wire nut two blacks together. Push them back in the box. Attach new fixture black to red. Connect all whites together. Connect all grounds together.
