I had a similar problem, you might want to try changing out the BWD - Relay - Multi-Use Part #R4823. It is located under the Dash, beside the Steering Column. I purchased one from Canadian Tire for $25.00
Must be a bad socket, anyway. If I understand, you are talking about the two contact points inside the socket? On a two filament bulb, one contact is for the smaller filament park light, and the other contact is for the turn signal and/or brake light, the larger filament inside the bulb. So if you tested with a test light, with park lights on, one contact only would light up the tester. If you pressed the brakes, the other contact would have a steady light on the tester. That same contact would or should have a blinking test light, with the key on and the right turn signal on.
I would not be surprised if you need a new assembly. Possibly, too, the ground for that side needs checked.
Turn the defroster on and check for 12v at the connector on the window. If you have 12v, check for breaks in the element (the thin lines running across the window). If you do not have 12v and the fuse is good, the culprit will most likely either be the switch or the wiring.
For the right park light:
Check the bulb socket. You should have 12v at one terminal (with the park lights on) and ground at the other. If the voltage and ground are ok, you either have a bad bulb or possibly a bad socket. By bad socket I mean they can sometimes distort and not allow the terminals to make good enough contact.
Turn the signal light on to the right and probe the contacts in the bulb socket with a test light to see if the power is there,your test light should blink,the other contact in the socket is the parking lights and tail light. if no power at contacts probe the wire it's self where it enters the socket for power.if you have it there the socket is faulty.
You have a broken wire to the turn/brake light portion of the light as they use the same wire. Or where the plug goes into the light assy could be bad. Torsion mount lights are horrible and you should think about replacing with a universal light that you can wire direct.
