LOL... I think this added another layer of complexity to the situation. At the fixture there are only two wires coming in (black and white) and they are not of the same gauge that I am getting at the switch. These two wires must go to another junction box (located above the fixture)
In the fixture, blue (motor) and black (lamp) go to the black from the source, and white goes to the white from the source.
I guess I need to go to the junction box and see if I can isolate the connections from there down to the switch now! I probably wont check today, but will post back with what I find when I do.
I see a glimmer of hope.
