track light installed

I tried to install a small three track lights kit in walk in closet. There's a lighted switch in there as well. I found that there's 3 wires coming out from ceiling instead of regular "black and white". I have black, white and RED? Where should I hook up the red one? I tried to hook red with either black or white, the lights were working OK but the switch will not turn it off or on? Pls. advise.

Try to cap the red with a wire nut and not connect it. The red sometimes is unswitched or switched by a different switch from the regular light switch.
