Look at the socket itself. Wires could be burnt or even inside socket corroded or burnt. The light bulb socket assembly cost around $40. It is best to change it. Pretty much self explanatory. You can wiggle the bulb and sometimes it woill work for awhile but it is a pain to keep messing with it so I suggest replacement
