If you aren't getting a bulb out warning from your instrument cluster, I probably wouldn't stress over it. (If you have your rear foglights enabled, you could always check it by turning them on. )
Thanks Kat, I'll definitely give the fog lights a go and see what happens. There was no on-board dash warning from my instrument cluster at all, come to think of it. The only instrument cluster warning I'd received all day today was the snowflake, informing me that it was freaking cold outside . It just caught me a bit off guard, because all of the other lights were functioning properly, to include the tail light section in the luggage compartment lid on that same side. Thanks for the tips, they're very much appreciated!
