I have a installed a 3 way switch for my kitchen light. I have done this many times. Both Switches work fine off/on. The problem is when they are in the off position the light flashes about 40 or 50 times a minute. It is a dim flash. I have checked the switches and tested them with a meter. The seem fine. Any suggestions?

Get rid of your lighted switch, and use a regular one.

Or install at least one incandescent bulb.

Agree. The light lighted switch is putting a tiny current through the light. CFL lamps will flash with this setup. One regular incandescent lamp or non lighted switches should fix this.
