QUESTION: new bulbs  one black from the hood to one black from the wall same with the white  one ground.

Look closer...normally when hooking up a new unit there are two black wires and two white wires....they come one from the light and one from the motor on each and white.  White is neutral and not ground....  Did you use the same bulbs?
