led tail light issue

Alright all worked before hand, I installed led tail lights and they work just fine, went to install a single reverse lamp on the passenger side. Its a simple 2 wire lamp so I found the wire coming from the reverse switch wired it and grounded both the led and the light I'm using for the reverse light on the passenger side. Everything still works except the reverse lamp, and I can't figure it out since it should be pretty cut and dry. I figure I'm over thinking it and am missing something. Thanks in advance.

did you try reversing the wires on the reverse light? LED's are directional and only work one way.

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

Actually thinking about it, to test the light I hooked it up directly to the battery red to pos and black neg and the light lit so I don't think it could be that.
