3 Way Switches
I have wired in 2 lights at the end of the run with 2 3 ways before them.

My problem is the first light stays on all the time and the second one works fine. Out of my second 3 way switch I have a 14/2 going to 1st light in parrallel with the second light. This is probably something simple but I am overlooking the problem. Any suggestions.

I'm about 99.9% sure what you have done but its the .1% that worries me.

Please answer one question...

Is incoming power at the first light?

If not where did you bring incoming power to first?

Thanks for your help, I have found my problem. I assumed the power was going into first switch but was actually the second. Wht it confused me was he was getting the power for 1 upstairs plug going right by the one stair light it was controlling.
