You cannot choose an endogenous variable to instrument. If you have three endogenous explanatory variables, then you need at least three instruments. Otherwise, your model is under-identified and estimation will fail.

If you instrument only one endogenous variable with one instrument, you are implicitly supposing that the other explanatory variables in the equation are exogenous.
