Window hinge light help!

So I ran 4 Hellas, 2 on the bumper, 2 on the window hinge. Both sets are run by two separate switches and relays. The other day one of the window lights quite working. I checked the bulb and it looked fine. Pulled the cowl off and checked the ground, and it seemed fine too. The wires were pinched by the cowl, so i thought that might be an issue, though the other worked fine and was the same way. I unpinched the wires and re ran them to a better place. Still not working! Any suggestions?! I'm stuck. The only thing I can guess is that I did touch the bulb on accident and I've heard that can make them not work. Any help is appreciated!

Use a multimeter at the bulb connection to see if you have 12v and ground at the socket. That will tell you if it is the bulb or the wiring. Then just trace it back from there.. Make sure you have power at your switch and all that jazz..

Check the bulb very carefully. Sometimes the blow and it doesn't look it and some times the short down inside the base of the bulb
