Then we switched out the second fixture. AAAACCCKKK. There are, for enquiring minds, two white, two black, and two red wires along with a copper ground. The extra red wires make me think that you have multiple light switches that control these lights. They're usually called three-way switches. Unfortunately, I'm not going to be much help on how to fix the situation. I've never looked at one of these close enough to figure out how they work. I'm pretty sure the switches are NOT the normal on/off type, although they probably look the same from the outside.This won't help you, but for lurkers considering changing a fixture, this highlights why it's important to take a close look at the wiring BEFORE you disconnect anything, even writing down exactly what wires are connected (when it's not the simple white-to-white and black-to-black).Hopefully someone will come along shortly with some real knowledge. The best of luck to you.--Peter
