Help with front left signal lamp!!! (84 CJ7)

I can't figure out what's going on...here's the situation; Just put a Centech wiring harness on my 84 CJ7...Everything is working great...but my left blinker won't blink. The rear blinker blinks and the parking light works in the front but when signaling it won't come on...I've checked the plug with a meter for power and it is deffinatly sending the signal to blink...not the bulb, not the light fixture, I switched it with the right side one that was working fine and it worked on the right side but the left still didn't work...HELP

I don't know how I could ground it any better than I am...Centech does have a good Tech dept....But they didn't know on this one...not a single person knows how to fix this problem.

Please let me know when you find out. I've got the same issue with the left rear turn signal/brake light. Good wire to fuse block and bulb good. I've ordered a new turn signal switch because in the diagram that seems to be the only place that it's not making contact. The turn signal flasher works, the front signals works - I know that my ground sucks, but I'm going to install new battery cables with a ground strap soon.

I honestly have no clue...when I probed it with the Multi-meter...it was fine...when I connected it, the current went from up,down,up,down to a constant 12v. I have no idea what happened but it fixed itself...make sure you probe it and find a good ground...I still don't know what was wrong with mine but if I ever find out i'll let you know

You could always run a wire from your tail light up to the front and it'd work ok, but it'd also come on evertime you hit the brakes...

It so happens that the brake light on the left rear also does not work. They use the same fillament in the bulb - I believe. I'm going to try applying 12V to the wire and see if it lights the bulb. If it does, then the problem will be somewhere under the dash, on up to the column or turn signal switch.

I found my problem. One wire on the turn signal switch was modified by PO who didn't know what the heck he was doing. I guess he tried to use this wire to tap into the lights for towing purposes. I soldered the wire back the way it should be, sprayed some WD40 on the turn signal switch, blew it all off good with air and it all works perfect now.
