I have 5 vehicles, all with battery tender connections, I have one battery bug. I wanted to make the bug compatible with the tender connection so I:

Cut the leads off the bug - red wire +, black wire -.
Cut a NEW spare tender connection before the fuse (all 5 vehicles have fuses on the connector.

I test the bug by touching to batter it works.
I test the tender wires with an ohm meter all ok. Female is +, male is -

I connect red bug wire to female side of tender, black bug wire to male side of tender.

I doesn't work. detach bug to raw wires and touch battery, all OK.

I'm puzzled.

I agree, sounds like the polarity is reversed. Try switching it around to see if it works.
