Hi, SC, and welcome to the forum.
There's really only three possibilities, either the socket is bad (if this is one of the insert-and-twist-in-type it's an easy and cheap fix), the contact surfaces for the socket on the cluster are corroded (perhaps easy and cheap, depending...), or there's a break in the circuit board that feeds the contact surfaces (neither easy nor cheap). I'd probably start by checking for current flow at the contact surfaces, if you find it you're 90% there.
(and kudos to you for successfully repelling the monster.)
Good luck and enjoy the ride,
