I need help on new wiring. From the box I installed 12-2 to a ceiling light Black to black terminal White to White terminal. From the light I ran 12-2 to a light Switch two pole with Ground. from here I have two wall outlets. Question do I need a different Light Switch or can I pigtale to Ground with white? I want to have power to the outlets all the time. and work the light with the switch. Jerry

The following schematics and pictures should show that you will have to change your wiring design and help you to understand how it works.


The following is a variety of drawing and pictures that may be of some help. We are working on a picture for example section on our site but it is slow growing. The pictures are mini pictures, pick the one you want to see and click on it and it will expand to full sized view.


Let us know if these links helped
