so i've decided to relocate and merge an electrical box. to make story short, i have a 3 way switch for the basement.
after some hands on research (existing wires), it seems that the previous owner had installed this configuration
anyhow, i putz around.. and now switch 2 (the one away from the power source) can only be turned on and off while switch 1 (switch close to power source and light connection) is in the on position? WTF happened? i've tried numerous combos and now the wiring box looks like a total mess. please help..
one thing to note is that the previous owner placed the black and white cables in opposite positions as opposed to the diagram.
