    I changed the corded light housing in the bathroom. It turned out that one of the bedrooms' light would not work. Finally I finally got the bedroom's light to work by connecting the cables to the right connections. However, if I pull the bathroom's light on, the bedroom's light goes off! And vice versa. I cannot have both bathroom's and bedroom's lights on at the same time. All other lights in the house are working fine.

    Note: From the ceiling there is an earth cable and three live cables.

    So how can I solve the problem??

    You need to buy a volt meter !. You will have one Perm live, a live going to your bed room and a live to switch for you bathroom light. you can get them to work by trial and error but the easy way is a maplin cheepo volt meter(always handy), then when you switch the switches you should get a + voltage, between the live and the neutrals that comes on and off with the switches and the live which will stay on all the time.

    Have fun

    Alex.
