Welcome to the forum.
Try replacing the bulb. It's a dual filament bulb, only half of it's working.

If that doesn't work, you may need to clean the contacts in the bulb socket. I haven't had mine apart to know how the socket is arranged, but if it's like the taillight socket, it can be completely disassembled and cleaned properly. I would recommend using some dielectric grease down in the socket to protect the contacts.

Again, that is if the new bulb doesn't really help things, or it starts doing it again after replacing the bulb.
