    Sometimes when I remote start my truck I notice that my right light does not come on. I lift the hood and have to move the socket around to get it to come back on. Its happened about 3 times in the last ten days.
    My trucks only an 09, so its not that old.

    Chances are you have some corrosion happening in the connection. Could be loose too. Like a loose connection that need tweaking to get it to fit tighter. Look in you book how to take it apart then you can inspect it. In cold weather a poor fitting connection will show up.

    My other truck had a great short that showed up only when it was super cold. It took a long time to figure it out. Of course who wants to work on it in the freezing cold and when it was warm it never happened. Drove me nuts for awhile.
