I am trying to replace an outside motion detector light fixture that was removed before I bought the house and the only things left were the plastic base in the eave and electrical taped wires shoved through it.
I pulled everything apart and have 2 separate 14/2 wires and neither is always live from the panel according to my non-contact voltage tester, both are switched and only live when flipped on at the switch inside the house.
Well I tried wiring up 1 set of black and white wires and just taping off the other to see if that would work but no luck. I'm not sure why there would be 2 sets of switched black and white wires. I'm assuming I'm wiring something wrong and its not a bad fixture but that's always a possibility.
Anyone seen this configuration before and have any ideas?
