    Hi, touching fluorescent for the first time and just want some confirmation on the wiring to get two way lighting now the problem is coming as there is only Line, Neutral, Earth on the fitting so where does your switch lead come in to play, pretty happy with the wiring to get the next switch in just the wiring from the garage consumer board to the light to the first switch. Many Thanks

    Well the Line on the fitting is the switched live same as all fittings.

    whats at the fitting doesnt matter in this case - are you really sure you should be doing this, why not get a skilled spark in ?

    loop in loop out is different to switch fed systems. If its already wired in loop in loop out, use a connector block on the permanent lives like the middle of a pendant then use the switched live into the L on the fitting

    If there's only L, N and CPC at the fitting it's the last one on a looped row. Two way switching goes from switch to switch, it has nothing to do with the cabling arrangement at the light.
    If you're struggling to wire this you should stop what you're doing

    sometimes it's best to take a breath and sketch it out when you've not used something for a while.
