Question about Electrical Supplies
Source Power From Box = 3wires - 1hot, 1neutral, 1ground. The ground goes to the outlet box ground screw. This is where i'm confused, what grounds the Lampholder kit to the outlet box? There are 2 ground screws inside the lampholder Kit, but no ground wire... Do the screws ground it once it's connected to the outlet box? Instructions Mention Ground 0 times.
The ground should be a green insulated wire from one of the screws on the fixture then attached to the bare ground wire with a wire nut.

SOURCE: circuit breaker trips
leave the original whites connected together, connect the new switch in series with the two black wires (one black to the top of the switch, the other to the bottom),
p.s. the switch is grounded through the mounting strap

This timer has a lot of capability that you don't need, so you have to do a couple of things. I will assume that you are using this switch at 120V and simply want it to turn the light on and off. See page two of the drawing at this link:
(this should be the same as the instruction sheet that came with your switch if you bought it new)
First, be sure to set the DIP switches according to the instructions for 120V (all 4 switches "ON").
For your wiring, refer to the first diagram on that page labeled "Timer and Load, Same Voltage, Wired as Single Throw". The two arrows on the left are the wires from your circuit breaker. The two arrows to the right are the wires going to the lamp post. The top one is black and the bottom is white. With that in mind, you will connect both white wires to the TIMER2 terminal. You will connect the black wire coming from the breaker to the TIMER1 terminal. You will also have to add a jumper wire from the TIMER1 terminal to the COM terminal. Your black wire going to the lamp post should be connected to the NO terminal (that means Normally Open, the other one is Normally Closed.)
This should get you there. Let me know if you have other questions. Be safe, good luck, and thanks for using FixYa. Please vote is this was helpful.
