If it is the check engine light, you would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes.
And it should be staying on when the engine is running.

First thing you have to do is list all the codes, because some some might be stored for a long time. Pushing the OFF and WARM buttons together and holding will ghive you all the stored codes. Then press OFF and HI together to clear all codes. Hold and wait for bars or 0's. Now start your car and let it get up to proper operating temps. Take car for aride that aincludes all phases of driving including highway speeds. Observe SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT for coming on . Assuming it does , repeat steps previously provided, read codes stored and repair accordingly. If need be contact me with new codes and I will try to assist you.

SOURCE: Car will not downshift upon acceleration..."kickdown"

Most affordable possible solution is to give it a transmission tune-up. Transmission number one problem is neglect. Change the oil, filter and pan gasket. You'll probably need to take the pan off, very messy job. Take the pan off, carefully scrape all old gasket material, clean the pan with dish washing soap, dry it completely, put a bottle of Lucas for transmission in the pan. Put some Indian Head Gasket Shellac Compound on the pan gasket surface. Set the gasket on the pan, keep the gasket on the pan for three minutes then install. Don't put any Shellac on the transmission gasket surface nor on the gasket. Follow recommended directions for filling the transmission with oil.

SOURCE: 1995 Cadillac STS 3rd brake light OUT?

No it wouldn't be a fuse because it's partially still working,LEDs are wired in series so it could be one LED is burnt out or the current limiting resistor has opened for that section.Repairing it would be fairly simple but will require a multimeter preferably with a diode tester and a soldering iron.If you're not familiar with using a multimeter and testing electronic circuits I would say let a professional repair it or replace the whole unit.Comment back and I will give you the test procedures if you fell confident in making the repair.
