Rear brake lights won't turn off


Check brake light switch (likely faulty). This issue may not be related to the engine issue.
If not the brake switch then check wiring for possible short circuit.

1989 Cadillac rear lights stay on


It may be a turn hazard module under dash.that is the culprit! The power to the third brake light does not go through the module, but the rear brake lamps power is controlled through this module. I am looking at a drawing of one and it looks like it has two connectors with about five wires in one and six in the other. It has some cooling fins on it also.
