Sounds like a bad ground wire, the other bulb is supplying the missing ground through the filaments

There might be a missing ground wire at the conversion.

My 2006 was doing the same thing. I finally tracked it down to the rear ground. It is the big gray plug under the passenger seat. The ground is the green wire on one corner of the plug. This part of the plug will often become hot and may even have a charred look. Mine looked OK but it would not pass any current. I put an OHM meter on it and it showed some resistance when it should have read zero. The fix is to cut the green wire on each side of the plug and put the two wires together with a wire nut or other connector of your choice.
