Default Details of 04 Bonnie Fog Light TSBs?

The fog lights are out on my '04 Bonneville SE. Additionally, the "power on" indicator lamp in the Fog Light dashboard switch does not illuminate.

I replaced the bulbs with new Sylvania #880 halogens, and despite appearances that the 15A fuse was good, I replaced that also.

I know there are two TSBs referencing fog lights on the '04 Bonneville SE. Specifically:

TSB Number: 050842013
NHTSA Number: 10017571
TSB Date: September 1, 2005
Exterior Lighting:Fog Lights
Summary: Fog lamp inoperative, fog lamp bulb burns out prematurely.

TSB Number: 07012004
NHTSA Number: 10013166
TSB Date: July 1, 2004
Exterior Lighting:Fog Lights
Summary: Proper fog lamp bulb.

Does anyone know the details with either of these TSBs? I bought the vehicle used, and the fog lamps have never worked in the 2 months I've owned the vehicle.

I do not know if the prior owner (it was a company fleet vehicle, before I owned it) may have already had such TSBs addressed. Since the vehicle is no longer under warranty, I don't know if a GM dealer will want to handle any fix work without charging me something, and I think the more I understand the specifics of the TSBs, the better the position I'm in, to hash that out with a dealer.

For example, is the first TSB a wiring harness problem? Is it a switch problem? (Please don't confuse this with the TSB specific to GXP wiring harness - I've seen that, but I dont own a GXP, and that TSB bears a different number). How about the second TSB - what'* the deal with the bulbs? Is the #880 not the correct bulb? Every reference I've seen says it is.

I would appreciate any specifics anyone might be able to provide. After reading through a good number of threads in these boards, I've really come to appreciate how much you all know the Bonnies inside and out!

Thanks in advance...
