This is what I have in the box.One blue wire-Hot thru switch,2 yellow wires,one of them always hot,the other I used as neutral for my installation.As soon I connected this two wires, I got the lights in the kitchen and TV working again.Now my question is how to connect my new ceiling light with fan,
since it needs neutral wire which I don't have any more.
Thanks

Sounds like you have conduit. Where is the original white neutral wire? You can pull a new white wire with conduit.

Turn off or unplug everything that is running when you have this hooked up and check to see if the yellow wire is still live.

I think,that I figured out what was happening. The yellow wires were neutral.Once I connected them the tester didn't show warning.
Thanks for your help.
