The fastest way to do it is to open your trunk, turn the black asterisk looking handle to the left all the way, then pull your rear housing off. unhook the harness and look at the grounding pins where the black wire goes in. If they're melting or burning, you should have and indicator on your instrument cluster telling you the bulbs are burnt out, even if they're not. If that's the case, and the black wire isn't tapped with an alternate grounding wire, you need to either take it in for a recall, or just fix it like most everyone else already has.
