Lighting question, 14/3 to 14/2.

I have attached a diagram of my wiring. The 1st light in the series works fine but the 2nd-6th do not. Any help would be great. I have the black wire from my 14/3 going to my outlets that need constant power. Then, for the lights that I want run off of the switch I tapped into the red wire. That worked great until I chained my recessed light together and only the 1st light came on.

Your wiring is correct. Redo your connections at the first light and second light.

Welcome to the forums.

The problem is either at the first light where you do have a working fixture or at the second fixture which is dead.
