Re: Switch - Wall light - GFCI outlet
Depends on how it was all wired in the first place. What you will need to do is determine if the power comes in from the light fixture, the outlet, or the switch, then isolate the outlet from the switch circuit. My suspicion is that the light fixture is powered with a switch leg to the switch. At some point someone decided they needed an outlet and tapped the switch leg for the power, hence the need for the switch to be on for the outlet to work.
