2002 Toyota Avalon tail-light-out light on but can't find the bad bulb

Hey guys. My wife's 2002 Avalon has the dash indicator light for 'bad bulb' on and I can't find the thing to save my light. I don't get any fast flashing for the turn signals and a check of all bulbs with and without lights/brakes on all show working bulbs. I also checked the license plate lights and they are working also. Can anyone offer any advice?

Thanks

Does the system monitor only exterior bulbs, or all bulbs in the car? You may have to check under-hood light, trunk light, interior courtesy lights, glovebox, console, ashtray, etc. if it watches ALL lights.

Thanks for the tips. I'm not sure if it monitors all or not. The indicator light shows the back of a car and it's tail lights. I was assuming it was only for the exterior, but it definitely is worth checking. I just wish I knew the location of all the bulbs...

Just a thought. Side marker lights, back up lights, high mount stop light.
