Electrical Question from John about 4 Way Switch WiringQuestion:
Background: John, a Homeowner from Chicago
Hello, I have 2, 3-way switch setups each controlling 1 light fixture. I’d like to tie them together into a single 4 way system, and to remove one of the switches in the middle box. Is there a way to accomplish this without running any new wires? My home has Romex and I can’t get wires run w/o tearing up walls… Thanks for your help! I’ve attached a diagram to help identify the current layout.
