My problem
I put LED lights in socket A and B and only A works.
Regular lights work (stock scamp lights)in both sockets A & B .
Both LED's work in socket A.
NO LED's work in socket B.
I can only get one side to work with LED's.
What gives?

LED lights are polarity sensitive. (Electricity will only run in 1 direction)

Reverse the 2 wires on the socket that the LED does not work and my bet is that it will now work.

Thanks
I will give that a try in the spring. I knew it had to be something simple.

I had the same problem and was about ready to swap wires. But I was installing 10 new LED's and just kept putting a different LED bulb in till one worked. I think it took 5 different bulbs before I found one that worked. LOL

I have no idea why.

My LED's work on A socket and none work on B socket. I tried about 10 LED's in B socket. I will try reversing the 2 wires on the B socket and see what happens.
