    I have a 64cj5 i totally rebuilt it from the ground up. Put a new wiring harness in and a new turn signal switch that mounts on the steering columun it flashes and signals work but the bulb wont flash. Testing it the plastic housing it shows its puting out 12 volts if i run a ground wire to the side of the bulb housing it flashes. Got it taken care of

    Some signal housing need to be clamped to the metal steering column for ground. I prefer to connect a ground wire under the bulb mounting bracket screw and fake the wire along the other wires and ground it to the dash.
