Electrical Repair Questions? Ask an Electrician for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to answer any of your electrical questions.
Just so I understand you ran 1 individual romex to each light and you want them both to turn on with 1 switch?
Are there other switches in that box that you will be working with?
Are all of the wires in the box, black and white? any reds?
ok put all of your whites together with a wire nut.
Then take your black wires, all except the new ones that you ran to the fixtures. Add a short piece of wire about 8" to the blacks and put them together with a wire nut. The 8" piece will go to one end of your switch. Then do the same with your 2 black wires that are going to your light fixtures, add a piece like the one I just mentioned, and this wire will go to the other end of the switch.
now on the switch do I attack all 3 blacks
You should only have 2 blacks if you read my instructions.
The short pieces that you are adding on.
I typed before you replied sorry
oh, got it.
