My 5c is that there should be a ground connection very close to the light unit, or on the left side unit.

Start there.

Also check the tow hitch plug for a possible loose wire. Thats where I think the problem may be. If it was a ground connection then all the lights connected will be faulty.

Good luck

Thanks for the comment

it does make sense that if it was a ground issue then it would happen to all lights not just the one, have changed the bulb, not that!

will look and see as you suggest
