Question about Hardware & Accessories
Timer works fine according tp programming instrucuions, but at no point in the process are the lights working. I have checked the light bulbs and they are working.
1) Copy following link for correct wiring and programming.
Always reset digital timers before programming to clear stray memory:
Timer must be wired correctly.
2) Each ON setting requires OFF setting, and days for each must match.
This timer does not show rating for inductive loads such as CFL or LED.
Timer is rated for resistive loads such as incandescent bulbs.
3) Buy Intermatic ST01C timer, or GE 15312 timer for inductive loads.
4) Add comment and describe situation in more detail, Dec 2013

By chance did you connect both the incoming and outgoing white (neutral) wires together without also connecting them to the "A" terminal? If so, untwist them and connect both of them under the "A" terminal. The timing motor will not work if the "A" terminal is not connected to a neutral.
With the circuit energized from the breaker, you should be able to read 120 volts from the "A" terminal to the #1 terminal.
Also, check to make sure the yellow dial is pushed in and set to the correct time.
Otherwise the timer is defective and a return to the store is in order.
The wiring for the T101 is as follows:
Connect _both_ the incoming and outgoing neutrals (white) wires to the "A" terminal. The incoming [(LINE) (hot) (from the breaker or source)] black wire is connected to the #1 terminal and the outgoing (LOAD) black wire is connected to the #2 terminal.
Both of the bare or green wires are twisted together along with a 6 inch or so pigtail using a red or yellow wire nut. The pigtail is then connected to the green "GR" screw on the enclosure

1) Programming steps say 'press clock key to return to current time and day'
2) Use mode button and change between AUTO & RND >> try manual override in each mode
3) Does timer turn lights on-and-off with program, or do they blink too?
4) Swap Black and Red wires
5) Try timer on light in different room, on different circuit breaker
6) Timer might be defective
Woods 59018 manual does not show troubleshooting steps except 'check wiring; switch Red and Black leads; and/or reset programming'
Seems unlikely you could program timer unless timer is wired correctly ... unless there is a short of some kind.
To review wiring.
Green goes to bare ground wire.
White goes to Neutral white wire (neutral is usually 2 or 3 white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box)
Black must connect to Hot from circuit breaker
Red must connect to Load (light, fan, motor etc)
How to test wiring:
Disconnect timer and set aside.
Mark each wire
Separate wires in box so they don't touch
Use ordinary tester (you can tape tester leads to wood sticks)
Turn on power
You should have two black wires that were originally connected to switch
Test black wires to bare ground > when tester lights up, that is the Hot wire.
The other black wire goes to Load
Now you want to find the neutral.
Test the Hot black wire to white wires in box.
When tester lights up, that is neutral.
If everything checks out, I guess timer is defective.

Timer wiring instructions shown on following page:
You connected the white wire and red wire together, and that is why lights are clicking on-off.
I test timers and have done this intentionally during testing.
Follow instructions shown on link above, and GE timer will work correctly.
Same wiring applies to Tork, Swilight, Utilitec, Woods, Leviton, Intermatic non-battery operated timers.
Instructions are different for Aube, Brinks, UPM and Intermatic battery operated
