I have weird setup in my garage outlets
. There is a box with 3 set of wires coming out. One set goes out to outside light post, second set comes from inside light switch
and is connected to an outlet, the third set is connected to the switch that controls
all of the garage outlets but is caped. All of the other garage outlets work fine. There are two problems: 1. the black and white wire on the set that is connected to garage outlet switch are hot. When I connect the meter to black and ground I get 120, I connect
white to ground I get 120. I connect to white and black doesn't read (I was hoping I was lucky and had a 240 outlet). 2. The outlet from inside switch to outside light post works when the wire to outside light is not connected. But when I connect the outside
light to the outlet, it makes the outside gfic outlet that comes before the garage outlet trip and won't reset. I tested the outside light using and outlet and it worked. I tested the line going to that light using an outlet and it worked. Somehow when I hook
them both through the outlet it make the previous gfic trip. I'm connecting it with all of the grounds pigtailed and connected to box and outlet, and white and black on each side of the outlet.
