Having a three-way switch is important before you make the three-way circuit. They are not the same as a regular switch at all. 3-way switches are used to control lights with two switches. These switches do not have an on/off position like single pole switches. It is important to understand how these are wired before attempting to troubleshoot or replace. Follow our three-way switch diagrams to get a better grasp on the topic.

With a pair of 3-way switches, either switch can make or break the connection that completes the circuit to the light. Take a look at the following diagrams below. When wiring a 3-way switch circuit, the 3-wire cable normally consists of a black wire, a white wire, and a bare copper wire. The other wires in a circuit with 3-way switches are the neutral (usually white) and ground.
