You are correct about your concerns.
I would like to test it and reverse it if did not like the behaviour in every day use.
That for i bridged and not cut or weld the cables.
That's strange. Things like this best to approach with a volt meter and continuity tester. Sometimes it's wrong cable, other times a dodgy contact. I'm not questioning your skills, all I'm saying is to triple check everything, especially when things are not behaving as expected. Also I would say CAN pins are irrelevant in this case and having them connected or not shouldn't make any difference.
