Question: "I am changing a light fixture
when switch is flipped up and down, light goes on and off
irregardless of switch posistion still have 126 volts at the fixture
could wires be crossed at the switch?"


Answer: Hi Dave,

That is normal. You are probably close to you power company's transformer and getting their higher end of their power range. Do to voltage drop someone at the end of the line could be getting 105 volts. I would not worry about it too much. There is nothing you can or could have done to get that reading.
