Question Backup light

My backup light only works 1 out of 10 times I back up. The bulb is OK and the fuse is good, why would it work only sometimes?

bad ground.
bad connection.
or bad ground connection.

Check the ground coming off of the light first and work your way towards the shifter switch that controls it.
