I have moved into a house that has a closet light wired as follows: It has 2 3 way switches with the fixture at the end of the run. Rather than having it wired in the standard way were the power comes into one of the switches with a feeded - 3 wire cable running to the other switch, instead I have the electrical power (2 wire), along with the fixture cable (2 wire) and the feeder wire (3 wire) coming together in one switch. The feeder wire then goes to the other switch and ends there. I'm comfortable with wiring the fixture and the switch with one wire but I'm not sure how to wire the fixture with the feeder with the power wire. Can you help?
