Wiring multiple lights between power source and switch
I did it myself under the supervision of an electrician and simply expected it to work. It hasn't. Here is what exists.
(1) panel/power source, (2) 14/2 with ground to (3) 3 way switch, (4) 14/3 with ground, (5) first light fixture, (6)14/3 with ground, (7) second light fixture, (8)14/3 with ground, (9) third light fixture, (10) 14/3 with ground, (11) 3 way switch/end.
I would like to eliminate the first switch completely (3) and control all three lights by a single pole switch at the end (11). Can anyone tell me whether this be done without re-wiring? Can anyone diagam it if it can be done?
lets see if I can help you, You have two boxes with 3w in each one, and you have these lites that you want to be on with a sp sw. Heres the basics, You need to get the hot and switch leg somehow into one box, either by physical meads or using one of the travelers as a extension of the power or switch leg, to attach to a sp switch. By doing some simple troubleshooting you can eliminate the other swich just by using the existing wires in the wall and other boxes.
