Funny you should mention that, I’ve been working on the same problem with my 04 Aerio for 2 days. If you've checked the bulb and that didn’t fix it then it's probably 1 of the 5 little resistors on the circuit board. They’re really small and aren’t soldered very well. Pull the clock and pop the white ABS cover off the back, once you remove the clock from the dash you won’t even need any tools to pop the rear cover. Now plug the clock back in (make sure you get the plug back in the right way or you’ll short everything out) then turn your key on and GENTLY push on each resistor with your finger while watching to see if the light flashes on. If it does then that’s the resistor with the bad connection. I say GENTLY because I wasn’t and the lose resistor popped off on mine and no matter how many times I try soldering it back on I cant get a good enough connection to make the light work.
If you do find the lose resister, use a small tipped medium heat soldering iron and fine electrical solder to carefully solder the ends of the resistor with a little solder as possible. What ever you do don’t knock the little thing off or you probably never find it again, and you probably never get it to make a connection again. I’d start with resistor 430, it’s the nearest of the 2 on the side of the plug-in pins on the circuit board. Hope you have better luck then I did…..

SOURCE: WHERE IS THIS PORT LOCATED?
Yes, on my 2002 xl-7 the low side port is behind the grill as ibass215 says. The cap is light green and marked with an "L". Thanks Susuki, couln't you find a more hidden place?

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls
