Electrical Questions? Ask an Electrician Online.
Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. You MN ay or may not be able to do that. It depends on what you have for wires in the box. Tell me the count and colors of the wires in the box and on the 3 way switch. Also tell me the wire color on the 3 way switch black screw.
This is the question to stay with. Can you read the previous post asking about your wires?
If you have 3 wires black, red, and white on the 3 way all from the same cable and a black and red for the single pole switch there should be another black wire. Was this box existing and working or is this something you modified?
OK, to be sure of the connections on the 3 way. You'll need to open the other switch and tell me the wire colors on the gold screws. They need to be the same at both switches.
You're telling me that you removed the wires on both 3 way switches? That being so, I need the count and color of the wires in the other box. It may be necessary to open the light fixture to see which color wires were used. There are several ways the switching may have been wired and I need to know where to start for an answer.
I'm sorry but after asking for info on number and colors of wires at both switch boxes and light fixtures, not getting what was requested it makes it impossible to continue. I'll opt out and allow another expert to assist.
