Then a 4-wire cable going between the two 3-way switches and then a 3-wire cable going from the switches to the load. Only here's the weird part, when the switch by the bed is off, you can't turn the light on with the switch by the door. In both circuits there are no white wires connected to any of the switches. Flip the power back on at the main panel and test your switches. If your new switches sport slick LED indicators, you'll know right away that they're working. It's always nice to hear.
Swap them out for something new and improved.
3-way switch circuits -- Variations
This guide will take you through the steps of replacing those aging three-way light switches with updated wall controls. Here, both wire bundles should enter the electrical box from its top side. Hey Dominick, Great videos, you give very good explanations in a simple manner easy to understand. Next is a circuit with the light between the two switches, but with the panel feeding the light box. A second bundle four-wire should contain three colored wires black, white, red and a copper bare. If I have you right here.
