Question about Music
It is likely dirty switch contacts on the selector switch. Get a can of CRC226 at home depot and spray the contacts sparingly. The CRC226 is in the electrical department of HD, usually near the electrical tapes in a small blue can.

Testimonial: "Thanks will try this weekend"
One possible cause is a dirty contact on the switch that controls which pickup is active - you would need to clean the contacts or replace the switch if the cleaning is impossible.
Another possibility is a broken wire somewhere beetween the pickup selector switch and the pickup that doesn't work - this would have to be resoldered.
If the pickups have separate volume and/or tone controls then it is ok to check those too, there may be a broken wire to / from the volume potentiometer or some damage or dirt in the potentiometer itself - again, broken wires would need to be resoldered or replaced, the potentiometer can probably be cleaned, but if it is damaged then it is probably best to replace it.
Hope this helps somewhat.
