Disconnect wires A, B, C, one at a time and each time you disconnect one try the switches and see what does not light.

in your sequence above...did you replace "A" before removing "B" and so on. So did you only have one wire disconnected at any thinme while performing your test?

do you have a voltage meter...that you can double check that the wire I marked as always hot is always hot
