Well that might explain things! Running new cables to the limit switches shouldn't be too big of a deal. I'll give that a try! Since the limit switch is wired normally open to ground, do I just run one twisted pair for both switch terminals? Or do I have a separate twisted pair with ground to just the active pin, and run another wire to the common - which is grounded on the connector.

Thanks again
Mike

Just run a single wire for the active connection plus a single ground wire. And twist the ground wire with the active wire.

I finally had a chance to rewire those limit switches with twisted pairs, and that seemed to resolve the issue. All axes are homing as they should. I appreciate the help!
