Single Pole Dimmer

Need help installing a single Pole dimmer. I remove the existing switch and wires are everywhere.

Welcome to the forums.

When we discuss wiring..... we leave the ground wires out so as to confuse the issue but ground wires need to be connected. Whenever you work on something you aren't sure of..... take pictures.

A single pole switch should only have two wires on it. If you just removed two wires there should be no problem. If you opened up splices inside the box..... that's different.

So now.....we either need a very good description of what you see or post a picture or two.
