Ceiling fan/light fixture to light switch

Intalling a ceiling fan/light fixture in finished garage. I have a HOT feed going into box, now hot feed to ceiling fan/light fixture: fixture black/blue to hot black feed, white to white, ground to ground, now i have a wire feed in the box out to light switch, which wires do i connect to make just the light to turn on/off?

Thank You hope makes sense
Mike

I could guess, but I'd prefer to have more information before I do:
  • Did you replace an existing light with a fan/light?
  • Are there exactly two cables at the ceiling box, each with black, white and bare wires?
  • Is the switch already wired, and does it have one black, one white, and one bare wire connected to it, with no other wires in the box?
Assuming the answers are all "yes", then make the following connections at the ceiling:
  • Power feed black to switch cable white (and not to the fan at all).
  • Power feed white to white from the fan.
  • Both black and blue from the fan to the black from the switch cable.
  • Leave the switch alone.

Johnny Boy,
No, yes, and no the switch is not wired yet and yes black, white, bare. But you gave me the right answer. Hot black to light switch white: hot white to white fan/light fix: black and blue to black switch. Leave switch alone?

Mikey Boy,

Connect the switch as I guessed that it was connected.
