enter image description herePlease could you advise me, why isn't second ceiling light working? Two lights and two switches, power does not appear to be going to second light, both switches are working. Have I wired first light which has three cables coming out of the ceiling incorrectly?

Hi. Landing ceiling lights one at either end of the corridor, two separate switches (one at each end of corridor) that work both lights. One light doesn't appear to have any power, possible wired the light as shown in picture incorrectly

  • can you provide pictures of the wiring of the lights and the switches? – bib Mar 3 '15 at 14:44
  • Are they three way switches? Is there a scenario where you can get that second light to work at all? – DarthCaniac Mar 3 '15 at 14:52
  • Where's the line, is there a load, a diagram with hot/neutral/switched/ground identified at each junction would help, are the switches two independent switches or three way switches. There's currently not enough detail to provide an answer to this. – BMitch Mar 3 '15 at 14:55

  • In the 'it never hurts to ask the obvious' category, have you confirmed the light bulb in the other fixture is functional? – FreeMan Mar 4 '15 at 14:47
