hanging light fixture, black, YELLOW, ORANGE?
My newer home in chicago never has the colors I expect in the boxes.
So I have a ceiling box to hang a simple 2 wire fixture plus a bare copper ground to the box which has black-hot- then my confusion, yellow and orange is in there too.....neither of which seems hot no matter what combo of switches in the house I use. I have a double switch in this room, and one switch is for the outlet I believe.
Aren't orange and yellow for 480VAC, just regurgitatin what an internet search came with for standard color use.
I am guessing I will cap the orange or yellow and wire black and the other to the 2 wire lamp....2 wires shouldn't matter....just needs to go and on, right?
I think I'd start by taking the cover off your double switch, and see if there are any yellow or orange wires in there. Might be a clue as to what is going on.
Due you are in Chicago they have uquine wiring colour format so let me post this real quick.,

Brown--travelers for three way

This is typical but be aware there may be some change along the way but this listing will typically cover most case beside the AFCI which I have not check it out yet.
