Threw a 20 amp breaker, everything came back on but 2 switches & 2 plugs. Replaced switches & 1 plug. Replaced GFCI in other bathroom. The switches & plugs still don't work. HELP!!

zinger,

See this post from earlier today. It's a similar problem and similar techniques will be needed to solve it.

I went to the post that John Nelson sent me to.Ended up replacing all plugs & switches on the circuit. Still have same problem. Two plugs & 2 switches still don't work. It still shows I have a open neutral. Anything else I can do? THANKS in advance.

The open neutral could be in a lighting box, or in a wire in a switch or receptacle box not connected to the device (did you check all other connections while you had the device out?). If that doesn't work, it may be time to call in professional help. The open neutral could be in the panel itself, or it could be in wire buried in the wall (e.g., hit by a screw or nail that was used to hang a new picture).
