:WRS:            Here is the manual with wiring diagrams, happy hunting. With any electrical problem I have always found that cleaning and tightening all electrical connections will cure most of them.

Was there a single wire for the lights to the battery that didn't get reconnected?

If you take the time to replace your lens, & detail that light bucket...

I think, you'd be surprised how bright them old 1156's really are.

There are some pretty high powered led conversion bulbs that will fit the 1156 socket base - they aren't cheap but will provide about a 200% boost in output at a lower draw rate . Not sure how long they will last as the chips need to dissipate the heat - might need some vent holes in the housing . I had a set in an old car - they were a bit overkill but at least you could see backing up at night .
