at the indicated lamp.
The lamp (bulb) can have a filiment that is on the verge of failing
completely, and is rattling around and failing intermittently. If the bulb
fits into a holder that fits into a housing, then the contact points on the
housing/holder can be corroded. Finally, the wiring harness can be burnt or
corroded where it plugs into the lamp assembly.
All of this is checked by a visual inspection.
Swap the bulb with a bulb in the same socket on the opposite side of the car
and see if the problem moves. If yes, replace the bulb. If no then do a full
visual inspection of the connection points from the wire harness all of the
way to the bulb socket. Be sure to inspect the inside of the wiring harness
connector and the lamp housing connector. You are looking for burned or
corroded pins, and bent or corroded contact points where the bulb fits into
