Intermittent Tail Light - only turns on some of the time

For some reason my tail light only turns on some of the time when the bike starts. Often when I re-start the bike, it will turn on, but sometimes it just doesn't turn on.

Either way the tail light still works.

Has anyone ever experienced this? Any ideas?

Check your brake when the tail light is out. Use a bungee or large elastic. Post your findings. My guess is a corroded connector just before the tail light. Second guess is a corroded ground connection, same connector. Third guess is a bad frame ground.
