Mine was doing the same thing. The wires(both sides) were grounded out against the body from constant rubbing against metal.One problem that I elliminated was the fact that the switches on the doors can go bad too, creating an open circuit even when the door is closed against the switch.I took the bulb out months before I fixed the problem.
I'd rather walk than be seen in a ford!
