Hi
I have just spoken to my father he said there were 3 red wires one of which was live and 2 black wires. He had 2 red together and the 2 black together and the light remained on. He said when he put the old one back up he wired it the way it was originally but then for some reason it stayed on.
Someone has just said that the switch wire may of broken when it was disturbed and if thats the case it needs complete rewire, this seems abit much,we were only putting a new fitment up.
