The bulb in there is probably the wrong one. It must be a 3057KX. The KX at the end of the bulb number is very important!! That bulb has a slightly different style base than a 3057 or any 3057 bulb without the KX on the end. You can jam a regular 3057 in the socket but it won't work correctly and it will also damage the metal connectors inside of the socket causing exactly what you're describing. HTH. -Jim

Look at the metal tabs inside the plastic bulb socket. Do they appear bent or damaged? HTH. -Jim
