I have a outdoor light pole that has recently been blowing the circuit
breaker when turned on.
I replaced the light socket in the pole and it still does it.
I isolated the wires that go out to the pole from inside and hooked a
OHM meter up to the wires.
I have continuity between the black wire and the bare copper wire.
Between the White and copper and black and white I have no
I pulled the bulb out of the socket and still have a connection
between the black and the copper.
Is this right or is it telling me I have a short some where in that
wire from the house to the pole.
I would like to know before I dig that wire up and replace it, that's
going to be a big job.
Any other thoughts of what it could be would also be helpful.
