My light fixture controlled by 2 switches has stopped working on one switch. The one that is not working will work if you turn the other switch on first. I have old N&T wiring is it possible I diconnected a wire elseware that caused this?

I have noticed that it does not only happen on one switch. The problem can go back and forth on either switch. What's going on?

I disconnected an old hole house fan toggle switch that's not used anymore since the fan has been removed. I reconnected it in a number of configurations, didn't seem to do the trick. But the wierd thing now is the way one switch will work at one time and the other switch another time. I can't establish a consistant combination or a consistancy in the switch connections power and nutral wires. I'm starting to look at the light connections.

The whole house fan switch is not a 3 way switch. It is a 2 position switch for the speed control. Get a new 3 way switch and follow the wiring diagram.
