Question about 1987 Ford Econoline
This is most comonly an earth fault.
Remove any covers over the wiring in that area, and trace the earthing points where the wires go to a bolt into the steelwork. It is best to remove the bolt, clean the steelwork with abrasive paper, then apply a smear of greae or vaseline. Replace the bolt + connection and tighten.
If this does not cure the problem, remove both lighting clusters, and remove the bulbs from them. Clear any corrosion you find - and apply vaseline to the contacts. It is quite common for contacts to corrode inside these "sealed" units because any moisture that gets in there just yurns the unit into a mini greenhouse - which accelerates corrosion faster than if it was vented.
