Bad connection somewhere, first check would be remove the lens and check that the pill is screwed in tight, they do come loose sometimes.

If you have access to another switch, try that to see if it cures it, otherwise strip the switch down and check the soldered connections from the switch to the board, I have had a few broken solder joints here, they just require a touch with a soldering iron to make good again. Also check the soldered connection between the spring and the switch board.

If that fails, remove the pill and check soldered connections of spring to driver and driver to pill body (it is quite common for the drivers to come loose from the pills)

Hope this helps

Cheers
