My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Check and make sure the correct bulbs were and are being used for this light assembly that continues to fail like this here.If the wrong bulb types are being used this can cause this type of issue here.

If the bulb is correct this can be due to a poor grounding for this light itself and the ground feed wire will need traced to locate any faults with it and if any issues are found they will need repaired.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
