If your getting a dull flickering light, like its trying to work then you don't even need to use a meter or test light to know its getting power. You need to replace the bulb and clean the connectors with electrical contact cleaner.

It's led and not a bulb ! Do led units have faults?

ahhh yes, how could I forget. They are non serviceable LED units after 04 also. Meaning they Don't sell the LEDS individually. It's a $60 assembly. Yea, if you have power to the unit and good ground then it will have to be replaced. Do you have a voltmeter or multimeter?
