Or if it is downstream of timer then the lights only come on after dusk no matter what time they are given power. And then go off at a certain time like midnight.
The original PE was downstream, so it had to be a low-voltage unit. Neither Lowes nor the local electric supply place had any of those, so I used the standard voltage PE and spliced it into the power cord (upstream from the transformer/timer).
Black tape over the eye didn't get the dock lights working, so I'll go over at dusk and see what happens. I know the transformer is OK because the lights worked last night when I put the timer on Manual ON.

both power cord Greens are together
If the lights don't come on could we have a defective PE? How to test it?
