Jake...... Watch this video. Video is about a trailer light but the gist of the ground is the same as with your license plate light.

I'm assuming your license plate does not have a ground wire on it... just has two wires coming out of it not three, thus no ground wire on the license plate light.

With that said, your license plate light is getting it's needed ground from it's contact points..... the two bolts that fasten the license plate light to the bumper...

Anyway, watch this video... pay attention where he says mounting screws need to go into very clean / no powder coat, paint in order to get a good ground.

So, was it the ground. How did you correct it? Did the video help?

Anyway, glad you got-er done!!!

Hey, good looking JL you have...
Thanks! And I'm really not sure how it started working, I got a test light and checked all the wires and stuff. Got frustrated with it and started working on the front bumper, when I got done with the front, I went back to the rear and tried everything again and it was working fine haha. Oh well, at least it works now.

Whatever you did you must have knocked it around so to speak and in the process you grounded that license plate light... Good you got a test light.... will come in handy..

Soft top folks:

What's it called when you remove the windows but keep the roof on?
