    I have 2 lights & can only get one or the other to light, not both at the same time!
    Is there anyway I can get both to work?
    I think I have tried everything & have had 2 electricians stop by and still cant get both lights to work. The electricians say its k&t wire and I will not be cappable of getting it to work.(cant believe that)
    Going nuts here!

    Wires are labled left to right as they drop into the junction box.
    1&2 are comming from an out side light.
    3 is capped off, no idea where it comes from. not a hot wire.
    4&5, when hooked to a switch turns on/off the inside light.
    Wire #5 is hot.
    When 1 & 5 are to a switch (as shown)& 2&4 are wired together, the out side light works .
    I would like to get both lights working w/ one or 2 switches.
