1981 Bigfoot wiring question

Hello, fiberglass fam! We have a 1981 Bigfoot (LOVE IT) and recently the left brake light/turn signal stopped working. All the running lights still work no problem and the right turn signal/brake light is fine, but the left is no longer lighting up when braking or turning.

Wondering if anyone has had this issue before or has any advice on where to start. We've taken the light apart and checked out the bulb, etc. Not sure if it's a grounding issue or something like that? Everything else appears to be working fine with the 7-blade, so we don't think it's a misfiring issue.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I had the very same problem with the left brake light but I found when I wiggled the wiring near the light it came on so I replaced about 6" of wire and that fixed my problem.

My 96 Ranger has an adapter that I have had to replace a couple of times for that same problem.
