Just found this forum and looks like an awesome resource. I recently bought my first house so I'm sure to have plenty of DIY projects!
First up is my lamp post out by the street. It's not getting any power (tested with wire testers).
It's on it's own circuit in my circuit breaker. There is a switch for the light on the inside of my home which also does not get any power.
Probably a dumb question, but is the wire being run from the breaker box to the lamp post, then from the lamp post to the switch inside the house?
I did find a thin black wire laying on top of the ground the other day while raking leaves. It appears to have been cut since it goes no where.
I followed the other end of the wire toward the house and it appears to be going to the side of my house where the breaker is located. I assume this is the wire that should be powering my lamp post? I thought that type of wire was much thicker? This is a really thin black wire.
As you can tell I know very little about electricity so any help would be very much appreciated. I'm the only house in the neighborhood without a street light!
