3 Way Switch Circuit Installation Issue
 
I asked my question here earlier, but my thread got closed as I'm a 'DIYer'.

Anyone have any advice that might be able to help even troubleshoot the issue?

Please describe in detail the issue and how you wired the switches and lights.

Hi,

I'm having some trouble getting one of these switches to work in (what I think is) page 2, diagram 3:

The switch on the right (I will call it switch 2, wired from traveler) doesn't turn on the light.

I've checked the conductivity of all the wiring and it is good. I'm not sure of is if my black traveler wire is attached to anything else.

Any help or suggestions to figure out why switch two in this circuit doesn't work would be appreciated, thanks.

The wiring diagram appears to be correct for sensors at both locations are you sure you have the wiring terminated per the diagram?

Does the 1st switch box have a 120V feed in it?
Not switch legs... the H/N/G feed.

That would be very rare to find in older houses...
and very easy to mix up when trying to adapt existing wire to provide it.
