Default rewire light from switch to light

I need to find how to pull new wire thru an existing conduit. With the power on I am not showing any power to one of my outside lights and the other light has only enough to flicker. I would like to pull new wire to both lights. the closest is about 3 feet with 2 turns the other about 5' with 2 turns. Do I need a special tool or do I just attach the old to the new and pull? Thanks in advance.

Default have you fluked?

Did you remove both the lights from the wall? Then check the voltage on the wires. If there in a conduit, Its hard to think they would go bad. Its probably the wire nut on the black wires at the first light. Good luck....

Easiest way is tie new wire to old wire and pull.
