Convert 3-Way Circuit to 2-Way Circuit
in our 5 year old house I'm removing a 3-way switch and converting it to a 2-way circuit to work with a standard single pole switch. However, the colors of the wires I found at the 2 switches have thrown me off. I don't have good access to the wiring at the light fixture itself so I can't verify those wire colors.
The 3-way switch that I'm removing has these wires:
Black Screw: White wire
Silver/Brass Screw above the black screw: Red wire
Silver/Brass Screw across from black screw: Black wire
The 3-wire switch I'm replacing:
Black Screw: Very Dark Gray wire
Silver/Brass Screw above the black screw: Black wire
Silver/Brass Screw across from black screw: Red wire
Could you please suggest the wiring changes needed or how to determine the connections? Thanks.
