Great minds think alike
or
Fools seldom differ

I'd like to think it's the former, but then if I'm the latter, I would wouldn't I?  ;D

I would disconnect all your limits and just connect up one, but still have all the limits set up in Ports and Pins like you have already.
 Have it so you can activate it by hand and do the homing sequence. Once the Z starts to home press the switch and Mach should stop and start to reverse, when it starts reversing release the switch and it should stop and the Y axis should start, just repeat the procedure for the Y and then the X.
 If this works OK then you need to look at either your wiring or the way the switches are activated, but we will cross that bridge if you get it working with one switch.

All,

Ok, I will give that a try, stirling also suggested that I hook up the X, Y, and Z on 3 separate pins, split them up. I Will give it a go as soon as I get home from work.

Thanks Again
