how can I disable a light switch so its always on?


Pull the switch out is it a single polr switch ? If so TURN POWER OFF AND TAKE THE TWO WIRES OFF SWICH SHOULD BE 2 BLACKS BUT NOT ALWAYS THE TWO WIRES ON THE SCREW TAKE OFF AND WIRENUT THEM TOGETHER AND THEN PUT SWITCH BACK IN FOR A DUMMY OR GET A BLANK PLATE TO COVER AND TURN BREAKER BACK ON ONLY PROB IF YOU HAVE A POWER OUTAGE FOR A SEC THE LIGHTS ARE PROGRAMED TO STAY ON SO YOU WOULD HAVE TO SHUT THE BREAKER OFF FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS AND BACK ON TO RESET LIGHT.NEED MORE HELP THERE ARE ALOT OF GREAT PEOPLE HERE THAT CAN GET YOU IN TH RIGHT DIRECTION.

I would install a switch guard first it's the easiest, fastest, safest way to keep the switch on all the time.
You should be able to purchase it anywhere or a blank plate that was already recommended.
