Stupid ? New bulb of course? Corroded plug? Wire? Bad ground? Mark light not on either.. Battery acid likes wires in the plastic cover:brow: It can hide and have fun!!

Mark light not on either..
I'd say this is a good point. Unless you know that that light is burnt out on that side, that should signal (to me anyways) that a new bulb probably won't be the solution. I would try putting a new bulb in there anyways, but I don't think that is it. I'd say something is up with the wiring that's affecting the side marker and the headlight. Unplug the headlight, stick a multimeter in the plug, and measure the volts when the headlight switch is turned on. Wouldn't hurt to measure the resistance either. I don't know what those values should be, but that would be a good place to start.
*EDIT* Actually, do the multimeter test on the passenger headlight too, to see what the values should be. Obviously the passenger side is working fine. If you get different volts and ohms between the two sides, then something is up with the wiring.

I've had 3 subs like that I replaced the plug with a junkyard plug its its just a bad connection or corrosion from the battery somewhere also my vw bus doses the same thing but its a tail light right next to the battery but never bothered to fix it
Just wanted to update the thread. I found that if I wiggled the connector with the lights on, the headlight dimmed intermittently. I unplugged the light, cleaned the connections, and plugged it back in. As of now seems to have fixed it. Thanks for the input.
