So I tested an outlet and I get 120v on Hot-Neutral and 0 on either Neutral-Ground or Hot-Ground. I found the previous outlet upstream (verified by disconnecting the hot and checking for power downstream). There, Hot-Ground gives 120v. So the setup is: Good outlet -> 3 light switch combo -> no ground outlet
I tested the light switch too between hot and ground and nothing.
I then went in the good outlet turned off the power and tested for continuity between the upstream hot and ground. The hot was separate disconnected but the grounds were spliced. I got it to beep.
So does this mean that somewhere downstream, the black is touching the ground? If so, how far downstream? If I am getting 0 on the light switch, am I correct to assume that it is happening there?
