Leviton Lighted 3-way Rocker. Switch works but does not illuminate
When the main light is on, either a regular (single pole) illuminated switch or 3 way illuminated switch has the neon lamp no longer in a complete circuit.
An incorrect way of manufacturing a lighted 3 way switch is to connect the neon light to ground, i.e. the switch frame or yoke.
When the light worked and then stopped working as you screwed the switch into the box, there is a loose connection somewhere, possibly a manufacturing defect in the switch.
