Remove 4-way switch; and remove another switch from the circuit
Sorry about the title, I got tongue tied trying to come up with it.
I have a setup where there are three switches that operate a single fixture. I am putting in recessed lighting and want to use a specific one of these switches to operate it. I have located the 4-way switch, but it is not the location that I want for the recessed lighting switch. Is there a way to connect the wires in the junction box so that the current 4-way switch location still operates the existing fixture and one of the other switches can be used for the recessed lighting?
I don’t care if the solution leaves the existing fixture or the recessed lighting with the new 2-way switch.
There may be a way, but there's probably at least a dozen different ways that your current 3-switch arrangement could be hooked up, and each way would require a different technique (and some would be impossible without rewiring).
If you can map out the wires you can probably figure it out (if it's figurable), but without mapping it's a lost cause.
