Turn Signal/Back MapLight Question(s)

OK, so my left turn signal sometimes works fine other times it blinks really fast like the front bulb is out . I checked the bulb the socket, and the fuse all seemed fine but it keeps happening. It seems to be a loose wire but I have no idea, which is why im turning to you guys Has anyone else seen this or know how to fix it?

My 2nd question is the map lights in the back seat wont come on, they havent worked since i got the car in march. I changed out the bulbs to the bright white ones, and i ve checked the fuse but no go. Any ideas?

Thx to anyone who can help me out!

Is the back left turn signal burnt out?
Is the switch turned "on" on the map light?

Sent from my finger

Don't care enough to think of anything funny

Both the bulbs are new i replaced them both. and yes the light is turned on

The rear turn signal has always worked, its been the front left that keeps going in and out bulbs are fine, and i even replaced the socket to see if that helped but no luck

There was a problem with the front indicators( turn lights) with not making full contact with the headlamp assembly. When you remove the bulb & the long bulb holder, look where the long metal contact strips end ( opposite end to the bulb) place a little bit of packing
( very small piece of paper) under the end contact. This spreads the contacts slightly wider creating a perfect electrical circuit.

Have you tried regular bulbs in the rear maps?

Well maybe a silly question but have you tried the LEDs in both directions? They will only work one way
