Sometimes the springs in the connector bind up with corrosion and don't press against the light base. The light base contact areas can also be dirty. Sometimes the bulbs make poor contact with the light base from overheating. Its just a troubleshooting progession starting with making sure you have volts at the spring loaded connector.

I cleaned the brass contacts last year on the tailgate and the light with 'emery paper' (used for wet sanding), then put on an electrical conducting jelly...haven't had a problem since.
