If the sockets are new then perhaps this vehicle was in a accident and the front end lighting parts were replaced.
I would check the wires for the lights. You might have a short which can cause intermittent operation. Possibly a loose ground wire.

Also check the earths, if need be add another earth wire to see if it makes a difference, I've seen a lot of cars where the earths had corroded etc reducing performance, you could also put a meter on the lights in turn to see what power is getting to them, if it isn't enough you will need to back trace to find the weak spot.
