How To Wire Three Way Switches The Right Way
[ad#block] I am wiring up two lights on a two pole switch or three way switch.
- The question I have is what do I do to have both lights come on when the switch is in one position and only one light come on when it is thrown in the other direction.
- How do I prevent feed back into the second light.
