Sometimes the bulb sockets get corroded inside and you can't see it. The bulb will work intermittently. Pull the bulbs and check for corrosion.

I had the same problem. mine was corroded in the little running light w/ 194 bulb... it worked fine but a couple bumps it went on and off.... it`s the socket , pull each bulb out and if you see green junk on the contacts that`s the bad one. you (might )be able to clean it out .but, be sure disconnect the battery 1st. then put some electrical grease on the bulb contacts and you should be good to go. if not just replace the socket

i had the same problem, with the bulb in center the back ligth in rear window, at top.

this bulb is special, this ligth had tree bulb, but center bulb is specified in the manual, and only the original in chrysle is the correct.

im replaced firs for other bulb, and the ligth turn on, but the message "rear lamp failure" display again, after replace it with the original bulb and the message not display again.

i hope you undestand.

luck !
