I bought a solderless emg 81, and an oldschool 85 (big mistake i think, hey, it was cheap!)...

Well, this is the problem, everytime i try to connect my 2 EMG using a 3 way switch, they sound both at the same position on the toggle, even when i change the wiring from NK to BD and viceversa

Lets say...

Bridge Position: Bride and Neck PU works (at the same time)

Middle Position: Bridge and Neck PU works (at the same time)

Neck Position: Nothing happens.

EMG Diagrams


Im using the #2 diagram.

I don't have any pics of the wirings atm. I will post em later since its 4am lol

The emg 81 works just fine when i use the #1 Diagram, same with the 85, i still don't know what's the problem, it may be the toggle?

This is my switch toggle, it doesn't have any sort of indication, so, im running blind to be honest...

Get a diagram for the switch, or use a multimeter to map out how it works. You just have it hooked up wrong right now.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
