I would frist check for battery voltage or use a test light to see if it has voltage at it. The if there is voltage there take the test light and put the ground lead on one side then the pointer on the other side of the terminals. The test light should light up. If so make sure the bulb is the same number. If not that could be why it does not come on. If you can see that the tangers are bent. You just have to use a small screw driver to bend it back.
