Electrical Question from Carolyn about Under Cabinet Lights Wiring Problem

Thanks for your electrical question.
Hi Carolyn – Wow, am I ever getting a lot of questions like this about under cabinet lighting!
First – I hope you did not use “COAX” Wire – I’m sure it’s just a terminology issue.
I don’t know if your lights are 120 line voltage or low volts.
Your lights need both wires to be fed and connected correctly.
Make sure the wiring method is parallel, not series.
