Switch turns off power to remainder of circuit
Hello everyone. I'm hoping someone might have some helpful information for me.
Over the weekend, i decided to install a light fixture in my bedroom. i had previously removed the wiring for a 3rd, off-center, and unnecessary light fixture in the bedroom several weeks ago.
After finally installing the new fixture, i find out that turning the switch on or off will also turn the fixtures on the remainder of the circuit on or off (depending on whether or not their switches are on or off). For example, my front porch light is on the same circuit down the line, and turning the bedroom light off also turns the porch light off. The other fixture in the bedroom, controlled by a separate switch, is wired with 14/3 cable while the problem fixture is wired with 14/2. These switches have never functioned as 3 way switches to my knowledge, and there are no three-way switches in the house.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch!
