    that's a pretty common problem, best to just buy new housings, clean up the metal contacts on the connectors, and drive away happy.
    the only other thing it could be is a fuse.
    depo makes some decent aftermarket oem replica housings, you can find them on rockauto, amazon, ebay, etc..

    There could be some corrosion or buildup on the metal contacts from the sockets.

    the dealer sells a replacement socket with a wire lead and it will come with a rubber seal, just use the seal from that, you can probably find it cheaper online.
    sometimes the housings start to leak and not necessarily from the seal area which is why I recommend just replacing the housing once they start to leak.

    Times two on previous post by Wes. If your leak looks like moisture, simply drill a really small hole to the side and lowest part of the lens, it works.
