I am trying to add another light fixture to an existing 3 way circuit. The power source feeds to the ceiling light fixture which is connected to the first three way switch using a 2 wire cable.
That cable in turn connects to the second 3 way switch. Here is a schematic, but without the additional fixtures wired from the light:3
I tried to wire the second light off of the first 3 way switch thinking it had the power source, but when I turned on the breaker, both lights were dim. I am thinking that the second light is in series with the first light, which obviously is not what I want.
Is there a way to fix this without the running cable from the first light fixture to the second one. It is a royal pain to fish wire across the ceiling. My hunch is that it can't be done, but It doesn't hurt to ask.
