More info. please

Could you give some more information please? Were the switch and plug in 2 different boxes or in the same box? How many and what color wires are in the box or boxes?

We need a complete inmventory of all the wires and cables in the box, as well as details as to how you hooked them up.

be specific. Identify each wire as to what color it is and what cable it comes from.

The breaker is probably popping when you turn the switch ON. As stated, we need complete list of wires and how they are connected.
