Not sure if you posted this elsewhere a couple weeks ago or if this is a new thread/poster, but my advice would be to try the simple things first.
*Be sure the appropriate fuse is clean and seated properly.
*Clean the bulb base and it's socket with emery cloth or very fine sandpaper.
*Add bulb grease to the bulb base when reinserting. ($2 at the register at most auto parts stores.)
*Check, remove, clean and reassemble ground straps in the area first, then all grounds if issue persists.
*Switch bulbs from one side to the other just to be totally sure the bulb isn't the issue.
