Having trouble installing a digital timer
I've seen similar threads, but it seems each configuration is unique. I am trying to replace an old digital switch with a new one. The switch controls outside lights, and was originally controlled by a second switch in the garage, in addition to the inside switch which is being replaced. When I installed the original digital timer, which I believe was intended for a 3-way circuit, I put a jumper across the second switch in the garage. My replacement timer apparently is not intended for a 3-way switch. I installed it (after determining which wire is neutral), but the switch does nothing. I assume the problem has something to do with the 3-way circuit. Is there any way I can configure the circuit to work with this timer? I don't need to use the switch in the garage.
