Bulb burned out and the socket holding it has burnt black marks, almost melted.
Running light out. GM ought to make sure that doesn't happen. Half the Suburbans/Tahoe's you see on the road have one or the other running light out. Its like they're advertising poor quality. Tough to switch out, too. Oil change place won't do it.
