Bath ceiling fan-light

Please help with connection. The fan-light has one longer black, one longer white, one longer green, a short white and short black wire. I am thinking the longer white and longer black wires connects to the line going to the switch but what to do with the short black and white wires should they connect together and then there is the green or ground. Please I am waiting for help

If your fanlite is like most I have seen you have one pair of wires for each function, ie, blk/wht pair for fan, blk/wht pair for the light.

Do you have two receptacles in the housings and plugs off of the light reflector and fan motor?

Depends on whether they can read or not. I've got a good friend that when I first met him he did things like spell kitchen.....'kicheon'. Turns out he ain't to good at reading either. I've never seen him read instructions for anything and as a result he has more headaches than one can imagine when he installs something in his home. He is a drywaller by trade....thank God..... I will say this about my good friend when you watch him hang drywall or tape it out you appreciate his skill whether he can spell or read....
