2014 Impreza

Default LED Lighting Issue

I bought a bunch of LEDs for my 2014 Impreza and have run into a strange sort of issue I can't seem to figure out.

I was putting in the backup lights and when I tested them, the right LED wasn't illuminating. I checked to make sure I didn't damage the wires or the bulb, blow the fuse, or put it wrong. Again I tested it and the light still wasn't working.

I swapped the lights to see if it was a problem with the bulb or with the harness but when I swapped the lights, the same bulb still wasn't illuminating but the other one was so to me it doesn't seem like the harness is damaged.

I swapped the broken bulb with the trunk light since both bulbs are the same and when I switched the trunk light on, the bulb illuminated.

Both LED bulbs I purchased are the exact same bulb, and have the same output power. Does anyone know what could be causing this problem?

LED's are polarized, turn the LED 180 degrees if it doesn't light.
