Standard 3way switch. There are two crews the same color, those are for the travelers. The odd colored screw is for the power in or switch leg out depending on which end of the line it is located.

There is no 'neutral' in a switch leg ... sounds simple but please think about it. The neutral goes to one side of the load (your light or what ever) while the hot goes to to the other side of the load via the switch be it single, three or four way switch.

I think you can resolve this if you thing about 'no neutral in a switch leg'.

Install one dimmer at the load end feeding the light. Install a standard 3way switch at the other end. Make sure the dimmer switch is rated for the type of bulbs in the fixture. ie Led, halogen etc.

The remaining 3-way switch needs a jumper wire.
See if your instruction manual shows the same thing as image below.
Let's go through this.
The yellow wire connects to a traveler ... and that traveler connects to one of the brass screws on 3-way switch.
The black wire from Motion sensor also connects to a traveler wire ... BUT you have to identify which traveler wire and which brass screw that traveler wire connects to. And then, put a jumper wire (a short piece of wire) from that brass screw to the dark-colored screw.
I think that will do it.
Add a comment if your device is different.

Some of these electronic devices are reversed when two of their wires are connected together.
That's what the jumper wire is doing. So the 3-way switch is just connecting and disconnecting the black and yellow wires, and that action reverses the circuit in the motion device.

The Leviton page for Leviton 5613 does not have a troubleshoot.
Manual shows simple wiring diagram.
3-way switches will not operate lights if switches are wired incorrectly.
Check your ground wire is connected.
Leviton 5613 series is illuminated.
Check that both switches have 5613 number.
Swap switches and see if problem is inside switch.

I am changing a 3way switch in the garage. I have 2 white, 1 blue, 2 orange, and 2 yellow wires my 3way switch has 2of the black screws. I cant seem to connect it right.


If you are replacing a three way switch with a three way switch, you should only use the wires that were connected to the old switch. (Unfortunately the color coding of these wires is not universal.) Assuming you have only 2 switches, that means you only need to connect 3 wires to the switch (in addition to the ground). One wire (to be connected alone on either side of the top or bottom of the switch) either comes from the electric panel or goes to the light fixture. The other two wires (both at the top or bottom of the switch) are the "travelers" and go directly to the other switch. You can examine the other switch (the one you aren't working on) to confirm which two wires are your travelers. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Adding an additional light switch to an existing light


To add a second switch to control an existing light, you need to get a 3wire cable between the two switches, Thats red, black, white, green wires in the cable. Then you would have to use two 3way switches to make it work. I posted a "tip" on how to wire the 3way switches ..

In general practice, you can only install ONE 3-way dimmer switch to control the lights. If you use two regular 3-way dimmer switches, the circuit won't work.

However, newer technology allows for double 3-way dimming from different locations. See this article about how to do this:

There are 2 3way switches. Usually one end has a wire going to the light, and the other end 3 way switch has the always on power coming in. Between the two switches are 2-wire travellers.

On the actual 3way switches;
2 screws are the same color and the 2-wire travellers go on these. The other screw is a different color -usually black. This screw gets the power on one end, and the switch leg to the light at the other end.
