Wiring of 2 ceiling lights to 1 swtich


Postby jimfromjohnstone » Mon Feb 18, 2008 9:37 am

I have replaced 2 ceiling roses with 2 ceiling lights (controlled from 1 swtich).

After connecting all my wires and flicking the mains switch I was pleased to find both lights working...... when I went to swtich off the lights at the light swtich 1 remained on!

I have the wiring as follows:

* mains/switch earths connected to light earths
* mains/switch lives connected to block but nothing at other side
* mains neutral connected to light neutral
* switch neutral (live) connected to light lives

How can I get the switch to also swtich off the other light?

Cheers!
Jim.

Please understand this is a guess but I suspect the light that switches on and off has the live for other lamp in with lives instead of in with switch wire.

So you would suggest that my lives from the ceiling light should connect to the Neutral (live) switch plus a live from one of the two power cables?
