I would say that it's a bad socket. You may be able to take a Dremel with a small wire brush and get down on the inside of the socket and clean the contacts and the inside of the socket.

I'm pretty sure that's the problem, I've seen it happen a lot.

Be careful when cleaning those contacts. That material that the contacts come up through will break easily.

I cleaned the whole thing and place the bulb so the spring is fully compressed and it works great .

Thanks for the clue and I will enjoy coming back from fishing around 9 with 2 big lights !!!

Thanks again
