Are you effing kidding me!!!!!!

So I decided to replace the cig lighter in the Wrangler today, easy 5 min job right. She's been bugging me for some time and it is a soft top so an electric lighter is kinda handy. Took me 15 mins just to get the old one out of the dash panel, then the modifications began. It required a hack saw, bench vice, 2 sets of channel locks, a jewelers screw driver, my pocket knife and out thinking the evil demented engineers at Chrysler to do something that should have been a simple 5 min. task. So an hour + later and it's done, or is it. When I push it in the blinker flasher activates, no dash indicators or blinkers, just click click click :banghead:

Every time I have to work on a Chrysler product I think of their tagline from a few years ago:

The first Chry I worked on turned me away from them real fast. It was a 65 Belvedere and I swear every screw and bolt was like 7" long even if it was only holding together 2 pieces of sheet metal.
But the Jeep is her baby, but I did insist on her getting the straight 6 because I know that is one of the toughest engines Chry, or any I6 for that matter, on the road, but couldn't talk her out of black paint.
