    I have a double light with motion sensor above the garage and it stopped working but I can hear the sensor click as though it senses movement but will not light. I am assuming it is bad as it is ten years old but I wanted some opinions from the experts. Thanks!:eek: Have a nice day.

    Did you verify the bulbs are good? If you can hear it doing something, it's likely the circuit breaker is providing power.

    It is entirely possible that two bulbs from the same package installed in the same fixture end their life cycle within hours of each other.
