SOURCE: I'm attempting to wire a 3 way switch with a dimmer

Hello Chris,

What has happened, is that you've got th two "traavelers" reversed on the plain toggle switch. These are the RED and BLACK wires. turn off the power and reverse the position of these wires and the switch should work correctly from either the Dimmer switch or the plain switch.

Here's a link with a diagram, which might not exactly match your circuit configuration, but you can also watch a short video that explains how 3-way switches work.

It is just a matter of getting the travelers on the correct screws in order for the circuit to operate properly from either switch. Also, depending on the type of dimmer you've installed, the other switch will only turn the lights on at the dimmer setting that you've left the dimmer switch in. So be sure that you're not turning the dimmer all the way down before you shut it off (at the dimmer) otherwise, the other 3-way switch won't be able to turn the lights on, regardless of whether you've got the travelers in the correct locations.

Remember to turn the power off to the circuit you're working on while you rewire it and flip the breaker back on when you're done.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Interior light delay

Same for both doors? If not, I'd check the switch(s) on the drivers door (may be more than one), or may be just one that has multiple contacts and the ones for the lights may be faulty.

Ford windstar interior lights will not turn off while driving. when parked lights will go off nut longer than the normal delay

Make sure the interior lighting dimmer is not set to the full ON possition.
I believe the Windstars dimmer is under the headlight switch yet in 2000.

The headlights will not turn off - then after 10 min they will shut off by pushing the headlight switch

Look for other light controls, this sounds like sentinal lighting, which has what looks like a dimmer style control that sets this light off delay. the goal is to give light until you get in the house. the delay is adjustable.

1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off

Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.

Two switches with two hallway lights-one delays going on.

What it sounds like to me is that the second light may have fluorescent bulbs - either the compact fluorescent type or maybe a circular bulb. The fact that when you turn off the switch and then immediately on and it works fine, also makes sense if that is the case.
