Or swap it out with the one on the other side. Just for testing purposes.

No sense in going crazy troubleshooting just yet.

Beyond that, get a meter or test light and check for power.

Same issue

I'm having the same issue, did a new bulb resolve?

A little google research suggests that the bulbs may have two filiments, and only the one is burnt out - explaining why the tail light still lights up but doesn't get brighter.
