Intermittent gong

Did some searching on this, either my key words are wrong or this isn't a common problem. Lately, my gong hasn't been going off sometimes when I'm leaving my lights on. 9/10 it will work, but lately it's been intermittent and getting worse.

The dash does display "lights on" but there's no sound. Then a few hours later I'll come back to the car and it's working. Any idea where I should start looking? A few suspect areas perhaps? Cheers.

The gong speaker is under the dash and over the brake pedal, you have to take the cover off, it is a small round thing with weirs .
