3 way switch light - help
OK, I am trying to hook up 3 pole switches in two locations.
4 lights in the ceiling are all LED.
Looks to me like the power comes in at the first swtch.
Then comes the next switch, followed by the lights.
The first switch was already hooked up and was not removed during renovation.
Light fixtures were changed and a splice added and the second switch is being changed out.
So I have tried every possible combination of wires just in case the colors are not color coded proper.
I almost always get the same situation where one switch
will turn the lights on/off, then the other switch turns lights on /off, but then turn one off and the other does not turn on/off. This is not correct, they should both turn the lights on/off no matter what the other does, right?
If there is an experienced electrician out there that can recognize the problem or anyone with ideas what could be wrong - Id appreciate some help.
Only thing I can think of now is that maybe the splice does not connect all 3 wires between the switches? I plan to go up in the attic to see if I can spot something tomorrow.
