installing flourescent lighting

by debby » Sun Nov 01, 2009 8:40 pm

I have a problem, today i fitted 3 flourescent light tubes to my garage ceiling, i conected them all, one leading to the next then on to the last one, when i switched them on the first one came on but the second two didnt, i followed the wires on following the wires as they came in, can anyone tell me where i may have gone wrong, thanks, debby

you might have a loose connection in second fitting, or a broken cable.

Try connecting them in parallel rather than in series.

Cheers
