Single Switch 6 wires?
I just purchased a house built in 1978, I noticed the garage light was on constantly, when I went to turn off the light there was no light switch. In the garage where the switch should be, there is a switch plate cover. I removed the cover and found 3 black wires connected together with a wire nut and 3 white wires connected together with a wire nut. Why are their 6 different wires and how do I wire a single switch to be able to turn off the garage light? Many thanks for any assistance!
