I have an outdoor light fixture that doesn't work - no power seems to go there. I was thinking that perhaps there is a wall switch somewhere that powers the fixture, but I've tried every wall switch I could find. I also tried a "circuit tracer" by screwing in a plug in the fixture, plugging in one end of the tracer into the fixture, and then trying to get the other part of the tracer to beep at the circuit breaker. No luck - I guess that I need power at the fixture to get that to work.
Any ideas on how to find out if the fixture is wired to a switch somewhere?
