Thanks for your electrical question Rick.
Rick, the ceiling fan 3 way light switch is wired as follows:
1) one wire for the incoming power – usually the Black wire.
2) one wire for the first light(s) to be turned on – Red wire
3) one wire for the next light(s) to turn on – Blue wire.
The third switch postion is where both sets of lights turn of at the same time.
It is best to verify the wires using a continuity tester.
