how to wire 3 wire(from ceiling) to 2 wire fixture?Weegy:
Are you talking 2-wire-plus-ground in the ceiling box, or 3-wire-plus-ground (red, black, and white wires, plus bare ground wire)?
Also, is there two switches that control the light? That's known as a "three-way switch", which is a different circuit wiring than what I'm going to describe.
If 2-wire-plus-ground, connect the white and black wires to the fixture leads, and the bare ground lead to the octagon box in the ceiling, and to a metal part of the ceiling fixture.
If 3-wire-plus-ground, same as above, with the exception of the red & black wires. One of those two wires goes to (or comes from) the wall switch. You'll have to experiment to find out which wire is switched. Connect that wire to the other fixture lead, and either use a wire nut to cover the remaining wire's end, or, if there are two of those same coloured wires in the octagon box, connect them together to re-establish the circuit they supply.Auto Answered|Score 1Weegy:
