I did a dum dum thing and broke the shaft of my Bimini stern light. Being a 2016 model boat it was a regular type of bulb. Went to get a replacement light from my local Bennington dealer and all they had was a LED replacement . Everything looks to be a direct plug, play and fit but it doesn't work. The old one worked fine, so I know it's not the wiring.
Could there be some kind of issue going from one type of bulb to another? I know when changing from older type bulbs to LED in cars there is sometimes modifications needed.
Thanks

I changed my navigation lights to LED and it was straight up plug and play. Make sure you have the polarity correct, as I don’t believe the LED’s will work if you have positive and ground reversed.

I agree with JohnL, swap the wires around and I bet it works.
