Here is another thread on the issue:
No aftermarket parts are on this car. If condensation made it's way in (very possible) then what specifically is the failure point and how do I confirm weather or not it's failed. Only the passanger side was opened and corner bulb replaced. You'd think the drivers side would still funtion. Unless it's wired in series?

Yes, all those apply. Keep in mind, the warning light is on the dash, so yes, its not functioning properly.
