Question about Leviton Decora Rocker 4-Way AC Residential Quiet Switch, White, #5604-2W
I assume you have 2 of the three way switches and this 4 way is between them. Do you have a non-contact voltage tester? They are a great investment for less than $15. Do you also have some way to test continuity? A cheap voltmeter or just a flashlight bulb, battery, and a little wire? If this presents no obstacle, then do the following--- remove the 4-way switch and spread apart the ends of the 4 wires as much as possible. Have somebody stand guard over these wires for safety (and maybe put a wire nut on each of them) then turn on the power. Only one wire of these 4 will be "hot". Take note of which wire this is. Now flip both of your 3-way switches. (If you know which of them is the "upstream" switch, you only need to flip that one.) Now, a different wire of the 4 will be "hot". You have now identified your 2 "In" wires. Turn off the power. Before connecting your switch you need to test it's continuity. You are looking for a pair of terminals that have no continuity in either position of the switch. (there are two such pairs, either pair will do). Connect the two wires you identified as "in" to the pair of terminals you just found. (either wire to either terminal, it doesn't matter) Connect the other two wires to the other two terminals (either wire to either terminal, it doesn't matter). You are done. If it still doesn't work, you have a problem with one of the 3-way switches.
