Ceiling light not working

I have a flush mount ceiling light that I put a pull chain switch in. Been working for years, and now stopped after working intermittently recently.
I tested the pull chain switch with an ohmeter and it fluctuated wildly between .9 and 4.8. It then seemed to settle down on .9...maybe I had a better connection.
Bulb's good. Not sure why this isn't working.

The pull chain part is probably shorting out. Change the fixture. The ones I had in my closet would last about 5-10 years. (Probably around 10 thousand pulls)
