Question Problem

My garage has a wall mounted light on either side. The lights were controlled by a hardwired timer that no longer functioned. I removed the nonworking timer and want to replace it. However, I have found that hardwired timers are unavailable. So I will have to use a plug in type. My problem is that I am unsure how to wire the recepticle for the newer plug in timers. The wiring has three white and three black wires running from two cables. Also, there are three, I think, copper ground wires. Help!

Not sure what kind of timer you have (electronic, mechanical, etc.), but there are many, many hardwired timers available.

You can find hardwired timers available at any of the big box home stores. Make sure that the timer you buy can support the lights you have. Some timers won;t work with florescent lights, for example.
