Question about Cars & Trucks
At one point the radio was coming on without keys in ignition. It stop doing it for a while and just last week I notice rear brake light lite like Someone had their foot on the petal.
This is usually a sticky switch on the brake pedal. An auto sparky easy fix. Radios commonly have a timer which they continue to run after through car is turned off this is useful in busy traffic where you turn off the car in jams or are just waiting like picking upfront a train station.

Sounds like you might have a caliper that is stuck and is not fully disengaging. If it is in the rear then you may have a bad rear caliper. Twoo things you can try. One is to crawl under the ca and adjust the tension two nuts on the emergency brake line. If that does not resolve the problem then remove the back tire and try to spin the drum or rotor whichever you may have. If it does not spin then try adjusting the e brake cable more if it still does not respond then you need to do a brake rebuild. Also does it pull while it is dragging? If it is then you will need to rebuild the brakes no matter what.

The other item is could be, if not a defective door switch, is some of the new MY trucks develop broken wires from the door to A-pillar.
This should be a black w/ yellow stripe wire in the harness between the door and a pillar. Not very common, but has happened more then once.

The check engine light could be any number of things and the only way to find out is have the codes scanned. The brake light issue is common on E46 3 series. It is an issue were the brown ground wire that goes into the lamp housing melts at the connector causing a loose ground connection. The connector needs to be replaced and also add additional grounding wires to prevent further issues. And for fuel additives either use the cheveron techron, or the bmw fuel additive(the bmw stuff is the exact same thing, so just use which ever is cheaper).
