Wiring help. I installed a vent to our bathroom and wanted to tie it to the light so the switch would turn on both the light and the fan. Once I thought I had it figured out, the fan would run when the switch was off but would turn off when the switch and light were on. Where did I go wrong? via /r/DIY

Everything I have attached is Black to black and white to white. I added a junction box and tied into the wire coming out of the switch and heading into the light then attached that new wiring to the fan. It's an old house and our wiring is a bit of a mess. I'm still trying to figure it all out.
