This problem is usually corrosion in the connector from the wiring loom.

Best fix is either to cut it off and crimp replacement female spades terminals or use a fibreglass pencil and carefully clean the connector and the light fitting, then spray with a contact cleaner and some water dispersant (WD40 or similar) .... the cleaning method usually works it just takes time, if the corrosion is really bad then the only option is to replace the connector.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
