Right Fog Lamp Intermittently Decides to Work

It's been a while since I've posted and was wondering if anyone else is having this problem. I've noticed recently that my right fog lamp just decides to work whenever it wants to. I'm not sure if the bulb is dead, loose, or if its the wiring. Anyway, when I turn on the car, the right fog lamp is off. I tap the fog lamp and then it functions normally. Anyone have any suggestions?

Sounds like the connector on the back of the bulb might not be seated correctly. Try disconnecting it, cleaning out the harness/connector and then re-attach.

Mine came loose and needed to be reattached.

I was at the dealer for something else and had them reconnect it.
