I've recently tried to hook up a new outside light and noticed that the outside socket wasn't receiving power. On further inspection, it looks like it has been disconnected at the wall switch in the kitchen - as there are two wires terminated off the switch labelled 'Outside light' :)
I'd like to reconnect them, but the switch wiring is much more complicated than anything I've tackled before.
What chriscba has said is correct, that being the case you must have made an error, since the other switches are already being used and your diagram clearly shows the switch on the right has nothing in terminal L1 (which is where chriscba said to connect the live wire to)
You should also prove that the wire interlinking the switches (You have not named it) is infact Live all the time. It appears that it should be, but you have already admitted to making an error in your drawing. You check that it is live by the use of a multi-meter.
As an "aside" you do not connect the neutrals to the switch because you would be connecting live to neutral, which would make a short circuit, which would no doubt go bang.
With the switch wired a LAP voltage detector showed there was powe going to the wall socket outside. Then fitting is brand new (prior to this there was just a plastic cap in place) is unless we’ve been unlucky and the fitting was faulty at purchase then I don’t think that’s it. I’ve also checked the bulb too ;)
I’ll revisit the fitting wiring in case there’s something up there.
Failing that it sounds like I either get a multimeter and do some more testing, or give in and call in a professional.
