Reverse Polarity on rear bulbs

Something strange is going on when I went to replace a burnt out bulb in the rear. The signals stopped working and when I put the bulb in the wrong way the signal will work but when I seat it correctly it doesn't work.

I will be checking grounds in a few minutes but wondering if anyone else have insight into this.

Everything worked fine before the I tightening some bed bolts...Hoping it's an easy find/fix.

Thanks

Re: Reverse Polarity on rear bulbs

So after more inspecting around the front signals no longer work. I'll be searching this site for some guidance.

Flasher unit isn't making any noise so I will start there....I have replaced this about a year ago but we'll see if this fixes the issue.

Re: Reverse Polarity on rear bulbs

Problem solved...turned out it was the flasher unit. I swapped out the hazard flasher and everything works. The one socket is kinda loose but after some shaking around it's working.

I'm looking to use the old lights for a few months than switch to LEDs
