3 Way Switch

I have a three-way switch with the line and the load in the same electrical box. I have a three conductor with a ground running from one box to the other. I just mistakenly put the line and the load in the same box. Is there a way to hook this up and make it work?

Welcome to the forums.

As long as you have three wires between switches..... the line and load can be anywhere for the circuit to work. Current code calls for neutral at both switches which you will not have there.

A quickie diagram.
