tried giving it a bit of a tap? mine sometimes goes out like you said also. the vibrations from the road/my long dirt driveway makes it do it. same with the clock in old lady's el, does the same thing. must be just fragile the way they are set-up inside... my 2 cents... may be useless info, or it might work...

Cheers
Sam.

Punch it
Always works until it breaks and falls through the dash then you buy a new one!

yeah mate, there is a bulb in the ef/el ones. remove the dash fascia and take the clock out. ull see the bulb just pushed into the back

very very easy to fix.
