Outdoor fixtures

hi, i just bought a new house and the two outdoor fixtures on each side of the garage donít come on. They had gu24 style cfl bulbs so i bought bew ones thinking they were bad. After replacing the bulbs both fixtures still donít work. When i turn them on, they flash for a second and stay off. Any ideas?

Did the circuit breaker trip. Are switched inside the garage? Is the switch bad? What kind of bulbs did you use? Try ordinary filament type bulbs below 60 watts. With power off at the breaker try pulling up on the copper tang at the base of the socket to ensure that the based of the bulb is making firm contact.
