I move an outlet 12" and rewired it the exact same; now the AFCI trips immediately, when turning the power back on. It's a 14/ wire in sequence with a pig tail to the outlet. Any help would be appreciated
An immediate trip typically points to a short-circuit. Make sure that when you pushed the receptacle into place none of the wires came loose, and that the grounding conductor did not contact the ungrounded (hot) terminal on the receptacle.
