Yes but be sure to turn the power off first a switch is basically a break in the active wire so put your pull switch as being that break glenn.....

My headlight on my 2005 kawasaki vulcan 800 classic won't turn on I have checked the fuse box twice and the fuse was burned up both times. Would this be the junction box?


Pull the headlamp out then replace the fuse. If it doesn't blow the fuse you new a new headlamp. If fuse blows start inspecting the wiring, it might have gotten pinched or frayed somewhere and this is causing the fuse to blow.

For expedition 99, my dashboard light doesn't work anymore, I've tried finding what fuse to replace but unable to locate problem.


There are two fuse's , one is in the under hood fuse /relay center or as ford calls it Battery junction block and one in the central junction block Blown fuse(s): Battery junction box (BJB) Fuse 6 (15A) and central junction box (CJB) Fuse 18 (5A ,on the lids are the # locations .Are you saying that nothing lights , radio, heater controls , back lighting for the instrument cluster . No check engine light, or any other warning lights . Do all the gauges work ? CJB is located left side of dash . Check the fuse's ! 25309735-p0bbf4gezpmb21wjojjnal1o-3-3.gif

Spotlight wiring diagram


Easier to use a junction box 5A as you need the spur cable from the lighting ring to go into this junction box then have the lights and switch both terminate inside the junction box.

You have more than likely wired around the wires going to the switch. Above is a simple diagram of how to wire in a light circuit. If this doesn't solve the problem, ehow.com has a good sight to look on for more wiring diagrams that can help you

*Neutral is the white wires usually in the ceiling junction box. There may be several wired together.

I hope this helps you. Have a good day and be careful with that electricity!

I have a circuit breaker that controls a light switch and all the outlets in one bedroom and controls half the outlets and a light switch in another bedroom. None of which work now. I have replaced the...


One single cable runs from the circuit breaker to a junction box in that area of the house.
The cable has a black Hot wire, white Neutral wire, and bare ground wire.
Once the cable arrives at junction box, it can split up 2 or 3 directions.
Each successive box receives a cable that feeds back to the first junction box.

Chances are the junction box is on the ceiling. And it will be the ceiling box that is closest to main breaker box.
Junction box can also be a switch box. In that case it will be switch box closest to main box.

Find the junction box, as point of organization.
Open junction box and separate all black and white wires.
Turn power on and see if breaker sets.
That will tell you if problem is between main box and junction box.

Junction box wires are separated.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Turn power ON and test each wire in junction box to bare ground wire.
Tester will light up on Hot wire.
Test Hot to each other wire in box, except bare ground, and tester lights up on Neutral
This identifies the cable that comes from breaker box.

Now, reconnect cable from breaker box to one of the other sets of black and white wires located in junction box.
Check if breaker resets.
If breaker resets, see what circuits are working, and you can eliminate them as suspect.

Remember each successive box in a circuit has 1 cable that connects back to main breaker box
Going 1 box at a time, and disconnecting black and white wires, will eventually lead to the suspect.

I have a black red yellow and green wire on a combination fan controller and light dimmer,which wires do i hook up to my switch line and feed line in my wall box....thks in advance


You have new wiring device.
Device controls fan and light.

To control fan and light separately from wall box, requires a separate wire to each Load.
So box requires one wire going to fan, and a separate wire going to light.
If previous switch has just two wires that controlled both fan and light, and then fan is controlled with pull-chain, it sounds like new device requires another wire be added to circuit.
Add a comment and say how many cables enter wall box, and say color of each wire in each cable.

Without knowing exact wires in your box, or exact device ... I can suggest answer based on typical wiring.
Compare this answer with instructions that came with device.

How to wire fan-light device:
-Device-green wire always connects to bare copper wire
-Device-black always connects to black Hot wire from breaker
-Device-red usually connects to wire going to light
-Device-yellow usually connects to wire going to fan

How do i replace a pull cord with light switch


Ok so, L (line) N (Neutral) and E (Earth ground), and no idea what this rose is. I suppose you mean Junction Box when you say JB. You can use the original junction box for the wall switch connector, but the Black and white wires coming from the switch must be disconnected from power to be used, if power is already present in your light's original junction box (which is usually the case when using a pull switch light). Then you connect the white and black wires to your wall switch and use them to break the circuit at the light itself by wiring it between the light and the power lead.

How to do you wire 2 separate exhaust fans to a double single pole switch with a 20amp breaker problem


Your statement is a bit off the wall

Do you have two single pole switches or two double pole switches

You would normally provide a Live, Neutral and Earth to each fan via a switched , double pole, fused spur box .(You run a cable from the spur to a junction box) , you then run a LNE to each of the fans (using plastic trunking or conduit if the cables cannot be sunk into a wall).

Inside the junction box you remove the Live supply cable from the connector which should now be carrying three cables leaving the two cables running to the fans.

Put the Live wire into the spare connector inside the junction box

Get a twin and earth cable with the two wires marked up as Lives (Brown or Red in the UK, or whatever your wiring colour code dictates in your country) take those to a single pole switch which is convenient to you and wire them in

Back at the junction box put one of those wire into the connector where the two Supply wires for the fans are and tighten them up

Put the second wire from the On/Off switch to the Spare connector in the junction box which is holding the Live Supply

You then have a fused supply with a switch to break the circuit

If you do not need a switch then ignore the second part and just rely on using the switched fused spur to control them.

You can use a single pole switch but it is safer to stick with the double pole version

The breaker will be out of the loop as that will provide the power and you should not be fitting wires to it

Downstairs toilet light switch needs rewiring


Yes, run a black wire from connector (a) to one terminal of your new light fitting if you are installing a metal fitting you will need to connect an earth wire also.

If you are reusing the same pull switch and it is still connected as you describe then the floating end near the light is probably the switched live conductor, so you could connect this to the live terminal of the new light. but be careful it may be live.

Caution always disconnect the power before working on electrical wiring.

Please remember to rate this solution.
