I have two cables coming out of the box. I conected the neutrals together. The common on the common screw and the remaining red and black on the traveler screws and the system works fine. The problem is that I bought a double swith in which the top switch is for the three way and the bottom switch can be use for another light and I could'n figure out the actual conection to make my one light to work. Once again the thee way top switch is conected and funtioning controlling 4 lights in my hallway, but I need my other light for the kitchen.
I previously did just like you are saying. I jump the hot terminal to the bottom switch commoon terminal. Connected the black wire from the fixture to the other terminal and the whites together. As a result, the three way swiches were controlling the single light as well. What am I doing wrong?
Jason, plan B it will not be too bad. There is a another switch next to the one in question. So I will take power from this one and that should do it.
