You have bad connections at the bulbs possibly from corrosion or oxidation. I would try removing the bulbs and cleaning the connections. You might want to go ahead and install new bulbs while you are at it.

Already did bulbs and cleaned connections . Still not working .

Clearly you have a bad electrical connection somewhere. If you can enlist a helper have them observe the lights while you wiggle various connections.

I'll give it a try . Thanks let you know.
