Light bulbs can be tricky, control modules control the lights, so the first thing i always ask is , is there a light out warning on the dash? anytime we have a bulb failure there is a lamp out warning on the dash, if there is not AND we have a bulb that is not working then we need to suspect a failing or failed module, let me know and we can go from there.
