Hi Tommy, both lights run from the same source and light switch. Switch is fine and as mentioned one
lantern works fine the other is not working. I've just checked the wiring and the light turns on when the ground wire is used instead of the White wire. I'm assuming we have a bad ground wire (white wire). Please advise
My test light has 2 leads and a light. Not sure if there are junction boxes or which lamp is first in line as the wiring was done by someone else and it is under ground (lamp posts).
OK, thx for the clarification. I'll check the neutral wire on the lamp that is working in the morning. If that one is fine, I'll look around for the junction boxes as noted. Ill keep you posted on my finding. Thx
Why is the light working when the ground is being used as a neutral? Not understanding that part of the equation.
Thx for the help
