    Yeah it is prob a bad ground. Make sure you have a good clean ground. You may want to sand the connection if it is rusty. I have tons of weird lighting problems with all my trailer. 95% of the time it is a bad ground.

    Thanks its weird cause I used a tester and at the connection the wire has power but the light wont turn on.Also I had an older set and it didnt work so I used the light intended for the left side and it all works now.
