When faced with what appears to be a burnt out bulb, the most common response is to simply replace the bulb. Our experience has shown that often the bulb is still good and that a faulty connection or corroded socket is the problem. Using an inexpensive test light (check out our test light part #110039) you can quickly verify power and ground.
