Hey, I’m new here. I have an issue Im trying to resolve. I had a double gang outlet that one side wasn't working so opened it up and It was kinda a bit of an odd mess. This is an ungrounded circuit cuz the building is old. This So I replaced the first outlet with a gfci. (This outlet is ran from a conduit down from the ceiling so its the only outlet on this cable) so I put in the gfci, white to silver and black to gold, on the line side. My next outlet I ran a section of black wire from the gold load side of the gfci to the gold on the regular, and same with the neutral, silver to silver with white. So as for as I know this is the correct setup? Both work, but when I plug my outlet tester in, all 3 lights light up? Did I wire something incorrectly? Or is it possible that the wires are reversed at the breaker? This is an older commercial building and there are some other electrical issues so anything is possible. I just bought the outlet tester and it works fine on other outlets. Its just this one that is showing all 3 lights, and doing so on both the gfci, and the regular one that is fed off it.
