Look for a poor ground connection on the affected bulb socket.

92 300zx electrical problem

My first guess would be the voltage regulator (most likely this one is in the alternator) is bad. The voltage produced by the alternator is varying widely causing, as in these two examples, lights to dim when output drops below normal and wipers to run fast when output goes above normal.

Solution would be to get alternator output checked and if alternator fails test, replace it.
A place like autozone can test your alternator, I think, for free.
