    Take out the panel, pull out the light bulb and switch it with the turn signal bulb or one of the other ones that you know works. Then if if is a blown bulb, you can pick up a new one at the parts store.

    Light out

    Sell me the car cheap, it will stop working soon! (j/k) :rlaugh:

    If not the bulb (most probably), then bad grounds, loose connections, bulb socket, dash circuit board, etc...
