messed up wiring

Postby jamie1789 » Thu Sep 13, 2007 8:12 pm

Any help would be great, can't find anything similar in the forum.
replaced ceiling light with 4 x 50 watt halogen ceiling lights in bathroom, I must have put wiring back in wrong order.
their are two switches on the wall one goes to the lights another controls an extractor fan on ceiling. Tried every combination I can think of but switch will not put lights off. wire colours... 3 red...2 blue... 1 black... 2 yellow...3 earth can anyone tell me in what colour combinations they should go back into connecters.
Any help appreciated.
