Problem with cornering lights

I wired up the cornering lights by following the instructions i found here on the forum. When i turned on the left turn signal, the cornering light blinked with it. When i turned on the right one it did nothing. Does anyone know what my problem might be? This is on a 95 Caprice.

Check your ground, and the wiring again. You may have grounded the cornering light through the small turn signal.

Only adding to have someone else put eyes on your work and routing. You can be looking right at the cross-up and not see it. It's out there but you might be lucky for the right side and it's a bad bulb????

Curious what changed to necessitate re-wiring in the first place.

It's a real easy add. Did it to my 95 too. You should have just needed two taps for the wires going to the connector near the air cleaner. One for left other for right. Then just ground the other side of the bulbs to the body.
Probably tapped wrong wires. orange black sounds familiar.
