could be the wiring or connector, try cleaning the connector with electric parts cleaner (visually inspect it first) and check if its getting a good ground

Is that new bulbs?

Sounds good ill do that and yes I did replace the bulb and that is a new one but it's done nothing

I agree with FADI there is obviously corrosion or grounding issue with that part of the circuit. Then and only then your winking cat will be gone. :D

Hahahahah awesome hopefully I can fix that and get it working thank you!
