Any thing needs a live and neutral, from what you have their its not possible since you do not have a neutral.

Could be a junction box somewhere with a neutral to the fan and a permanent and switched live to the switch... just sayin'

@OP this is one of those jobs where a forum really cannot help. You need an Electrician on site.

Probably is, but without more info as it stands there is no neutral.

I have to agree with you. robeaton, what I have said is true, the "problem" if you will as there is no such "rule" that says when installing something you must use this colour wire for this, and the other colour wire for that. We would need more info, in order to help, but even then its possible to miss something, so as wine~O suggests, in this instance, you would be better off getting an electrician or similar competent person to physically look and sort it for you.

Not even at the second piece of strip connector lurking at the back of picture 1 with those black wires in it? :roll:
