Question about Leviton Combo 2 Switch Single Pole - 5224-2A - Almond
First thing that needs to be done, is to find out which pair of wires go where. Since you had these lights working (somehow), Switch off the breaker or unscrew the fuse that operates these lights. Once the lights are off you can now disconnect all the wires from that switch. Keep all wires separated, and away from ground. You mentioned that you have a equipment ground (green or bare wire). Hopefully this goes back to the panel. With a continuity tester or VOM (make sure it is in OHMS), place one lead on this ground and the other lead on any white wire. if it reads almost zero ohms, then this wire is a neutral wire. If not, it either indicates that you have 2 hots and 2 switchlegs, or you may not have continuity back to the panel on the ground wire. Another approach would be to make sure no one but yourself is in the area. After removing the wires from the switch and isolating them, again making sure no one is in that area, turn the power back on and place the VOM on voltage (Make sure the leads are in the proper locations on the meter) Place one lead on ground and with the other lead touch the individual conductors. The one(s) that reads 120 volt are hot. To make sure you have the proper conductors, unscrew both bulbs, to make sure you are not getting feedback.if you have 2 hots then the mating pair in the able goes to the light fixture. you would need to remove the fin because the fin is for a 3 wire application.
