    I had this problem on my signum a few months ago. I changed the bulb and the problem persisted. So I looked more closely and noticed that the metal contact in the bottom of the bulb holder was corroded due to arcing (probably caused by bad contact with the old bulb). I cleaned it with some fine emery cloth, put a dab of petroleum jelly on it and refitted the bulb. Problem has not recurred since.
