My headlight doesn't work after I put in new bulb.

I have a 2008 dodge avenger and recently the left headlight began to turn off on its own, I could sometimes get it to come back on by tapping on the headlight itself, but now there is no response. After replacing the bulb with a new one, there has been no difference. I would really like any help that you can give me. If this can be easily be repaired by myself at low cost or if I would have to take my car into a shop.

Do you
have the same problem?

Start by switching the bulbs from left to right just to make shore its not the bulb. If it still cuts out play with the connecter. Pull on the wires @ the plug. If it starts to flicker replace the connecter.
