Lockhart Phillips Flush Mount

Ok so I have a question I have a set of lockhart Phillips that I put on and now when I try to power them with a drill battery they don't light up. Does anyone have any suggestions on what could be causing this? I have LED lights as well with them and they work when there is no bulb in the housings. Curious if anyone has any suggestions on what could be causing the issue. I thought I had a bad ground so I redid my wiring with solder connections and now this is the issue I am having. I am using a 18v dewalt drill battery to test with.

Also does anyone know how the bulbs are powered is the case the ground and the two points on the bottom for the power to the fillaments? Looking for some help on this one.

nnjhawk02 is an unknown quantity at this point
Hmmm - not sure why you would be testing it with a 18v cordless drill battery.

These are LEDs?

U should be able to plug & play, like I did years back with standard LP flush mounts.

It's standard bulbs with for the flushmounts and I have led's running in parallel with them. I used a 18v because it's what I grabbed I will test again with a 12v batt.

12v LED no likey 18v supply. Good chance you're in the market for some new signals.

the led's worked fine but I think I shorted my filament bulbs out picking up new ones today and then ready for reinstall. Grabbed the stupid wrong batt!!

Ah, that makes more sense based on your first post. Don't run 18v through those LED's if possible... they'll burn out pretty quickly.

On these dual filament bulbs how would one check for continuity? The silver surround is ground right with each point on the bottom being for each element inside?

I went to the auto store and they said it goes off of diff voltage. Well that isnt' going to light up diff elements. There is 3 lead wires to it so I assume it's individual power to each elements with a common ground being the case. Just looking for advice on it so I can eliminate issues.
