2 sets of wires to bathroom light fixture
I am trying to replace both vanity lights in my bathroom. One has one set of wires from the box and the other has two. On the one with 2, I hooked a white from one set to the black of the other and then I hooked the remaining white to the white on the fixture and the remaining black to the black on the fixture. I hooked all 3 grounds together. The first time the lighting fixture with 2 sets of wires were bright and the light with one set were dim and barely on. So I switched which black and white wires were connected on the fixture with 2 sets and this time both sets of lights were dim. I made sure each time that the black and white wires that I connected were from opposite sets. I'm not sure what else to try. Any help would be appreciated!
