Bathroom light switch faulty

Bathroom light switch (2 toggles) operates two lights. 1 bank of lights gone out. Opened switch, found 2 cables coming in, 1 with a red and earth and the 2nd with a red and black.The first cable has the earth properly earthed and the red going to A1. The second cable has a red going to A, and the black was loose! A and B are joined by a small red cable. I presume the black should go to B1, as 1 bank of lights work like this, but the other doesnt.

My bike won't start from the button and all my rear lights will not come on


Hi, Ja and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.
Good luck and have nice a day.

Check engine light is on and i got error code p1133. what is that?


Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Bank 1 Sensor 1
- Vacuum leak
- Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Bank 1 Sensor 1 harness is open or shorted
- Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) activity for 90 seconds after closed loop operation has begun. The PCM determines if the front HO2S is functioning properly by counting the number of HO2S-1 Lean/Rich (L/R) and Rich/Lean (R/L) switches.

If the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) determines that the front HO2S did not switch enough times, the PCM will set the P1133 code.

replace the o2 sensor

The bathroom light does not turn on, I changed the switch but now the light in the hallway does not turn on. The original switch was wired through the back but I have changed it to the side.


Is the bathroom light controlled by two switches?
Is the hallway light controlled by two switches?
What color wires are in the bathroom light switch that you changed?
Side wiring will not change the way the switch works.

Our switch for the ceiling fan burned out today. Instead of getting the same type of switch (rotary knob with push on/off) I bought a Pass & Seymour combination toggle switch (dual on/off toggle...


The wire to the ceiling fan are meant to send voltage to the fixture only and are not usually wired to control both the light and the fan independently. In order to do that, you may have to pull another set of wires to the switch box and then connect them to the light circuit in the box where the fan is. In regards to the other wiring that you mentioned, it makes no sense that the wires go to the stove fan and the bathroom fan unless those wires are source wires that carry the incoming voltage.

What if the light that is being connected has been added, thus the reason for the outlet being converted from 2 plugs to now 1 with a toggle?


I don't exactly understand your question, but to control that light using a switch you have to have two sets of cable one coming into your switch box and one going out of it. Tie your two whites together and the two black wires go on your switch, whereas on a receptacle black and white wires go on the terminals.

Wiring comination 2 switch, with exisiting light to new bath fan


Hello anonymous,

I am concerned in so many ways... (USA NEC assumed):
FIRST concern:
(after the obvious BATHROOM/GFCI issue) is the
NATIONAL ELECTRIC CODE for wire/device capacity
INSIDE your existing ELECTRIC box...

The CODE requires wires to have space ... aside
from the fact that it is just plain dangerous to
pack wires densely and pack them together tightly...

Then... of course... You have said nothing about the wire gauge/ampacity... (again assuming 14 Gauge/15 Amp)... you will have to calculate the fill for each wire and check the Cubic Inches Plus your device against the ELECTRICAL BOX rated capacity...

That is just the BASICs of SAFETY.


Looking for a diagram of your
"1595" Legrand Pass & Seymour I have failed miserably.

I have found what YOUR switch looks like...

From an old electrician's standpoint...
If you have EACH device wire separately thru
their respective switches...

There should be NO POWER to operate the FAN.

The FACT that there is ... Is highly PROBLEMATICE.

It would seem that a PREVIOUS ELECTRICIAN
has switched the NEUTRAL side of your
old light circuit... Easy to prove with a VOLT TESTER.

I Recommend KLIEN NCVT (non-contact volt tester)
Klein Tools NCVT 1 Non Contact Voltage Tester Electrical Tools Amazon com

A SWITCHED NEUTRAL
poses an EXTREME hazard in a bathroom
(any water) location but is EASY to fix...

Rip it ALL apart and properly configure all the EXISTING WIRES...

Do it right... Be safe.
