Why does my front left light keep flashing when I'm not in park?

Asked by Nov 30, 2016 at 08:25 AM about the 2005 Pontiac Sunfire Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My front right light is out, not my running, and not my bright. Whenever I'm
in any gear but park, if i don't turn my lights all the way on by turning the
light control dial all the way forward, then the front left light, also not my
running or bright, keeps flashing rapidly. Is this just the car letting me know
one of my lights is out? I can't afford to have anything fixed, at the moment,
but one of my car guy friends said that a PMC (?) seal may have broken,
and water may have gotten in and damaged my wiring or caused a short
somewhere. I know next to nothing about cars, and wanted to ask before
trying to do anything as far as repairs go. Like, I wouldn't want to buy a
bulb if that's not the issue.
My regular running lights and my brights all function normally when in park,
but I can't run just my running lights without my regular lights flashing the
left bulb quickly.
