wiring lights to a ceilin rose

Postby Patrick Tomkins » Fri Jan 23, 2009 11:53 am

I am replacing a ceiling light fitting. The new lamp has the following connections, live, neutral, earth. The following are the ceiling wires:
1. 2 reds, (live)
2. 3 black, (neutral)
the ceiling wire are connected to two switches at the either ends of the room. How do I connect these wires to ensure both switches work? Please help.
