These types of problems are often caused by poor grounding of the lamp sockets. Make sure the lamp sockets are properly grounded to the body.
To find the problem, use a piece of wire that is connected to a good ground and, while the lights are operating, touch the end to the lamp sockets to complete the circuit path to ground.
Repair the socket by soldering a piece of wire to the socket shell and connecting the other end to ground. Sometimes are replacement socket will be needed.

X3 with Vic, but you might try cleaning the hole that the socket fits in...... might be rusty...... NAPA sells the socket pretty cheap.
