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.

2006 Cadillac DTS , #rd brake light, AND no trunk operation

Assuming the center high mounted stop lamp (LED) is OK, both symptoms point to the BCM but in the case of the trunk the valet switch could be on or shorted to turn on.

Do you mean the trunk mounted LED brake light strip?

This is removable, you have to open your trunk and on the inner side of trunk lid (behind light strips) you will find all the fixings that hold the body coloured trim panel in place, this needs to be removed to remove LED light strip.

Is there a fuse or relay or micro relay for the CHMSL on 98 sts

check the lt blue wire at upper lamp,(under trunk lid trim panel) for 12 volts when brake is applied. if no voltage,check same color wire at brake lamp switch for voltage.(by brake pedal).if no voltage replace stop lamp switch asm. if voltage is detected at rear by lamp then replace CHMSL asm.(center high mount stop lamp). this lamp is made of many LED's,if some work and some don't you will need to replace lamp asm. can be repaired by a trained GM tech, possibly. there is no seperate fuse or relay for this lamp,only a stop lamp fuse.

Water in trunk lid Popping in front end springs when going over speed break squeaks sound like it is coming out of the car

the only fix for the water in the trunk is to replace the trunk seal, folowing EXACTLY, the install directions. The water actually gets it's way in at the rear most vertical sections of the weather stripping. new strip needs CORRECT sealer, buy from dealer only.

There is an improved design being produced now.

COMPLETELY clean all old sealer, a tough but necessary job...

Brake squeaks repair involves machanic in a tube on the METAL to METAL parts of the back of your pad. Ideally, you would resurface the rotors, or look at replacement, as that may cost less...

Buy top quality parts only for these brakes.
