In my '65 I replaced the bulb but it still wouldn't light up. took the screws out of the console and lifted it up, found the whole bulb/socket assy was sticking. Sprayed some electric contact cleaner in the plunger/socket, put it all back together and still no light. I then realized that I forgot to put the screws back into the console. Without the screws, no ground, the plunger/socket is a power fed only and the console acts as the ground in the circuit.
Since then no problems, by the way, my plunger/socket is a single orange wire into the plunger assy, it comes from the front dash harness. Hope this helps.
