ok heres the deal...i know very little about electric in houses so please bare with me...
now the problem....
as u can see the problem takes place in the garage...now the breaker is somehow linked to the house cause in the basement at the main breaker it has a switch to turn the whole garage out...now the garage didnt have lights on the ceiling when we moved in but has outlets on the roof...so we got some temporary regular light bulb sockets to plug into the outlets and we would just turn the lights out at the breaker...and on the breaker it would be the second switch down......so everything was fine for about 3-4 months...then one night we went to turn the breaker off and when we did it tripped the top one and the second...so i looked up how to reset it..i went out there and held it to the left for a few seconds and it reset it...so it was fine for a little while then now when u turn the second switch the lights sometimes go out but then come back on after a while...and then sometimes when u turn the switch the lights only dim...but also when u turn the top along with the second all lights go out ...but the problem is that the first switch turns the outside lights out...so yeah if u can understand that....also when u look at the breakers the first and second one has a screw that goes in between that?...so yeah if u need any more info let me know and all help is appreciated...and please keep in mind in new to this part....thanx
