Hello all, This is probably a silly question, sorry.
I am trying to replace an existing wall light switch with one with a neon light as we keep leaving it on (it's for an external floodlight)
I have wired the new neon switch the same as the old one (two red wires from the wall into L1 and L2 as previously)
Wickes think the reason it's not coming on is because it needs a Neutral, there is a capped off neutral wire in the socket for the light switch (along with an earth which is connected to the backing plate)
I am unsure of how to proceed, the floodlight turns on and off fine but the neon doesn't come on (it's a brand new switch)
