    I’ve replaced a porch light today it’s fed by a fused spur. But when you turn the fused spur on the light stays on permanently.

    I can upload pictures of the light and also the fused spur.

    I don’t think so, I’ve adjust the sensor on the front too. Not made any difference.

    In other words it may be stuck in a fancy permanent on mode
    ..soon cured by Turning off the supply ,
    Waiting 20 sec , then back on in a clean single action.
    (as jiggling the power on and off multiple times is how you get into override mode )
    ---Or turn it off and look for signs of water--(then look for bin)

    It has not got a switched live terminal and you have put the live in there instead of live in?

    In the light there is just a L CPC and a N in a connector block. It’s old colours so it’s L Red, N is black and CPC is green and yellow. Or do you mean on the Fused Spur?

    Some pir lights have a 4th terminal for manual over ride

    Chances are you have a faulty light
