I have a light switch that powers an outlet when it's turned on. I want to remove the switch, connect the wires and make the power in the outlet permanently on. In that case, what am I supposed to do with the ground wire that goes into the switch? The outlet is already grounded so can I just cap off the ground wire that goes into the switch?
With the light connected to the outlet it would violate code not to have the switch, if you added a ceiling lamp that was switch controlled then this outlet could be wired hot without violating code.
