four way switch with multiple lights
I would like to add more lights to the circuit lighting my garage approximately 200' from the house. It runs 2/14 form the panel to a three way switch at the basement door. It then travels 3/14 to a four way switch at an upstairs door. It then makes a 3/14 run out to the garage where a three way switch is at the door. The only light is above the door with a 14/2. I would like add a light above each of the two doors at the house.
I ran a 2/14 to both lights from the switch by the basement door. I joined to the black from the lights to the black traveler on the three way switch. The whites went into the bunch. The lights and the two three way switches worked as before but now the four way switch doesn't operate. I undid my additions and the four way worked again as before. Where am I going wrong?
