I have a three wire circuit wired incorrectly and it doesn't work the way it should.
If the switch with the hot wire is switched on (Box #1), the other switch works as it should (Box #2). However, if the switch in Box #1 is switched off, the Box #2 switch doesn't function at all.
I have a multimeter and was able to locate the hot wire in the first box, and found continuity on the two traveler wires in box #2. The problem is, the remaining wire is not black, it's red and there is ZERO continuity between the hot wire and this remaining red wire.
In this same box (box #2) is a single pole switch that controls the fan motor. I tried taking the not-hot black lead and switching it with the red lead that should be the common for the fan light, but then nothing worked. Not the fan, not the light. I am stumped at this point.
The switch with the hot wire almost works like a drop leg circuit instead of the way it should. Should I take ALL the wires out of box #2 and test each one until I find one that has continuity with the hot wire from box #1?
