Thanks so much, mdd2018tlx. That does help!
So, I grabbed my multimeter and set the dial to the icon that looks like an arrow pointing to a pipe character. The icon looks sort of like this: ->|
I don't think I'm able to post links without moderator approval yet (due to my post-count), but the unit is an Actron CP7665 and the manual is available on its product page, if you don't mind having a look. I just want to ensure that I have the dial on the correct setting for a continuity test.
In any case, when I touch the probes to the leads on the light assembly, the reading remains "1", so provided I'm doing this correctly, I do indeed appear to have a busted trunk light.
I'm not sure which lead is + and which is -, but the reading is still one even if I swap the pins. If it's helpful, the wires on the female/plug side are pink and yellow, with pink on the left when looking "down" at the light from above, as it would be oriented when installed.
And Gonzo, to answer your question, the interior light is set to Auto, and the other interior lights come on as expected when I open either door. Good call, though!
Next, I suppose I'm off to hunt-down the replacement part...
