I have two way lighting setup and I want to find the feed (phase) wire into
one of the switches. I'm using a DVM switched to AC with the backbox earth
as a ground. I can't seem to find a wire that gives me a positive (240V)
result! What am I doing wrong?
I also need to remove the 2-way switching from one of the switches and
convert it to a regular one way light switch. anybody know the best method?
Maybe you are doing nothing wrong. You have no guarantee that the backbox is
Often the feed (phase) is at both switches on 2 way lighting on modern
wiring. How many wires and of what colour are at both switches?
That will depend upon the wires available. See above
Thanks for your help
Switch A has twin & earth both in red and a single wire also in red.
Switch B has twin & earth in blue and brown and also the single red wire.
I was using the earth wire as a ground. I also have one of those
illuminating screwdrivers which lights up with quite a few of the wires!
