Customer Question

i have 3 halogen recessed lights controlled by one switch. i took down the lamp housing, and the wires going to the halogen is hooked up to a transformer, stepping down 120v to 12. as i want to change to GU10 led light which has its own transformer, i cut the transformers off. i did that first to the light at the end of the kitchen, and when i hooked up the led light it worked without any issues. when i moved on to the second light, doing exactly the same, the circuit is now broken and none of the lights would turn on
