Any way to tell which light is going to burn out?

I've got the yellow bulb indicator that's telling me a bulb is on the verge of going. I've got a road trip planned for later this month, and would really like to know which bulb it is before I get going so I can replace it preemptively. Any way to tell aside from actually testing the resistance on each line? I have a JB4 and an OBD2 scanner, if that helps.

Thanks!

The bulb indicator only comes on if a bulb is actually out. If you press and hold the computer button on the turn signal stock and do the car check it will tell you which bulb it is.

cc id codes...

Press and HOLD the BC button(on the end of the turn signal) for a few seconds. The code that comes up will tell you which bulb(s) are out(or will go out soon!).
