Default Led brake light problems on my 2012 hammer

I got an led tail light and when I connected it the tail light would work but no brake lights when I hit the brake. I tried finding a power converter for it thinking that was the issue but couldnt find one for a 2012. Anyone have any suggestions?

first take the light and touch all wire to the battery and see if it will light up.
Take a meter and see if your getting power at taillight when your try the breaks.
How many wires are on the bike for the taillight
how many wires on the light

The light comes on when its connected but it wont light up when the brake is applied. Its a quick connect set up. Thats why im thinking it may be a voltage issue.

Take two jumper wires and hook to the battery. Now find the ground on the taillight and hook it up. Now with the hot wire touch the pins and see if you get a bright break light.
