reset your breaker...... make sure it is pushed completely to the off position. then turn it back to on. ...... Or, it may be tripping with your wiring job.

Maybe either the hot or the neutral is still disconnected from the circuit? Or, maybe, within a socket outlet you want to use that is on that circuit, either the hot or the neutral wire is not properly connected into its terminal in the socket outlet?

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Before you do any work yourself,

on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,

always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized

IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB

SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY

REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.
