bathroom exhaust fan

I am replacing my existing exhaust fan with a fan/light combination. I was told when I purchased it that no additional wiring would be needed. The new fan calls for three wires, to control the fan and light seperately. Can I use the existing two wires and run the fan and light together.

Apparently your existing exhaust fan only had two wires feeding it so your new fan/light must be wired so both the fan and light operate at the same time. To operate the fan and the light separately would require an addition wire fed from the fan/light to the wall box. To answer your question; "Can I use the existing two wires and run the fan and light together", the answer is "yes" you can.
