It sounds like the LED controller built into the center stop light is malfunctioning. The only suggestion I have is to replace the light strip.

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.

SOURCE: Brake lights don't work on

First check your owners manual for fuse box location and check for any blown fuses. Next check the brake peddle under the dash for a switch, which is mounted to the peddle arm and turns on the lights when the peddle is pressed in. If the switch has worked loose and is not being pushed when you are pressing the peddle the lights will not come on. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

SOURCE: 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.

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.

My brakelight in middle on 2002 Cadillac Seville northstar is out how do I change this myself?


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.
