No problem but a question about three lights above rear window
There are three lights that are in above the rear window. I believe the lights are normally off, however last night, I believe one light, RED, came on and stayed on until we stopped to pick up our daughter. When the side door closed the light went off. I have noticed these lights before, as I said, I believe there are three, RED, AMBER and another color.
THE QUESTION: What are the lights for???
Yes I own the 2007 DTS
Thanks. Melvin Thompson

IF THEY CHECKED FOR A DRAW ON THE BATTERY AND THERE WAS NONE DID THEY CHECK ALTERNATOR OUTPUT? IF IT WAS IN SPECS THEN YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A BAD BATTERY. YOU MAY WANT TO HAVE IT CHECKED AGAIN. THE DEALER IS NOT ABOVE MAKING MISTAKES
The third brake light is the brake light in the center of the vehicle either around the lower part of the rear window or above the rear window. They didn't start to become common until the late 80’s - early 90's.
It is also known as the high mount brake light or the cyclops break light?

a fuse would only apply if they all share the same circuit. i don't believe they do. i think the only common thread they share is that they are on the rear hatch. look to see if a wiring harness is pinched of chafed through.
1st you need to get the window down are all fuses good ....if so you can get the inside panel off and gain access to the motor is the motor bad well you'll need to use a test light and determine power to it with a good ground and test with the key in the on position if power is present then make sure the connection is solid and work the window button if the trunk itself is not fully closed the window switch may not work as well after all above is checked remove the bolts from either the window itself 10 mm i believe or 7/16 wrench to remove the glass then you may open the lid and repair as needed and reassemble the glass close the lock_s itself and use teh switch to drop window down and then pull on the release handle to open the locks back up n close lid hatch and ensure the proper working of the window you may need to adjust the window one way or the other for alignment and if working good at this point reinstall the rear panel and yer done
I recently had the same issue in my '05 Silverado... I believed it was something more dire, but it turned out that i just needed to replace the taillight bulbs. After getting stopped twice by cops within a month's time i figured it was at least worth a try to replace the $5 bulbs before spending hundreds on a mechanic to do it for me.
According to the manual the buttons are for the HomeLink Universal Transceiver which replaces up to three remote controls hand held transmitters) that operate devices such as garage door openers, motorized gates, or home lighting. It triggers these devices at the push of a button.
