HI daveydw, hope you haven't yet disconnected the old wiring!!!
You should have 4 reds together, not connected to your light just in loop in terms, these being L in, L out to next light, L to switch, L to fan .
then 2 blks + 1 blue going to Neutral of light, these being N in , N out to next light, N (blue) to fan.
yellow + blk(with red tape/sleeving) which are back to L of light + sw L (Yellow) to fan. the one to note is which blk is with the yellow, if you get the blks mixed up or all together....BANG!!!
repost with outcome please>>>SPARX
