If it was a faulty switch I would expect it to happen with both lights. It could be a poor earth to the one bulb which is causing the problem or even a dirty fuse holder.
Have you checked the fuses to see if they are clean and sound.
A decent auto-spark should be able to trace the problem fairly quickly.
If you have access to a multi-meter or test lamp you could check if power is getting to the lamp and if there is then its likely to be a poor earth
thanks for your help noel i will check the fuse holderts tomorrow i have checked the fuses and relay all seem fine but i havent checked the holder also where would the earth be on the vehicle as its so tight to get anywhere near so any ideas of an easy way to check it thanks for your help appreciate it kieron.
