Theres only one indicator light that all four burners share, and I always begin with the front two burners because they normally see the most use!!!

you could try carefully disconnecting the P (pilot) Terminal of each Burner Switch
(one at a time)
.

As RegUS recommends, Unplugging each one till the pilot light goes out,is about the only way to find the failed switch..You cannot do a voltage check, cuz voltage is at all of the 'P' terminals of the switches.................

You can disconnect the switch wires and do a continuity check to P with the switch in the OFF position. Usually from L1.
