BigShark, maybe your car is a US-make but for me the real culprit has been the rear fog lights (2 in total, one on each side of the plate) which you can light up manually with a button by the steering wheel.

My first warning light 1 years ago was that the bulb "seat" for the rear fog light was a bit burnt but the bulb still working. I used a screwdriver to get it back to bare metal. It has been working fine until now. After inspecting all lights this time I actually got the light on again, luckily before having put the liner back up. It proved to be the buld holder being a tad bit loose in it's seating so it would wiggle a bit. I was able to bend some tiny metal flaps so now it sits very tight.

Hopefully I never have to tear down the lining again. PIA to get it back when you are alone

PS. I have a 2007 year model and except for the one burnt rear fog bulb seat every other looked like brand new.
