Each 3 way switch has 3 terminals....

In reply to 3 way switch - HELP by Anne in WI on December 3rd, 2001 11:42 AM [Go to top of thread]

1 on one end and 2 on the other. One of the 3 way switches should have the end with 1 terminal connected to power all the time.(from the breaker) The other 3 way switch has the end with one terminal connected to the light. The ends of each switch with 2 terminals are connected from one switch to the other. The neutral wire bypasses the switches altogether and goes directly to the neutral side of the light.
Hope this helps,
