How do I wire a ceiling fan and light with a 4-way circuit that both the fan and light are independent?

If you want to turn them on/off separately, you need 2 circuits for them.

And a 4-way circuit means that you have 3 separate places where you want a switch to turn these on or off. Is that really what you want?

If so, see for a fairly clear diagram.

Otherwise, tell us just what you want -- how many switch locations for this light/fan combo.

I need the same help with wiring a 4-way switch and wiring the fan and light independently. My fan is powered, the 4(3) switches are not powered, so I need to power those 3-way switches with the power that is coming to through the fan.......gosh does make any sense.
