Broken wire or bad connection? The bulb connection may be corroded. Try to clean it out or give it a shot of WD-40 and rub it with an old clean toothbrush. Make sure there is power to the socket. aIf the other light works, than the problem is in the light or connector. Try changing bulbs and see if it then works, You may have gotten a bad bulb or bumped it and broke it.
