hooking up 3 way switches

What's the second cable in the #2 box?

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.

hooking up 3 way switches

no, not a typo. they used a different color. it's close to black, but it's not black.

not sure what the second cable is. there are 2 overhead lights that these 2 switches control. could it be for the second light?
