Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Do you have a 2 wire voltage tester?
OK, give me a count and the colors of the wires in the ceiling box. Also, test all wires to ground for voltage.
Count and colors of the wires in the switch box? Test for voltage to group d there.
1) see if antithetical outlets are dead
2) check fuses or breakers. Use the tester with the panel open.
Typo ...Google has a mind of its own.
Any other outlets
If you decide to check for dead outlets, while doingso by wiggling them when you insert the test probes your light may work. A bad connection in an outlet ahead of the switch may have the loss of a connection. The wiggle most time makes the connection identifying where the problem is.
Very good, you're welcome.
