Probably a bad relay or faulty wiring thats grounding out. most of those wires go through the door jams in a black plastic tube and can get pinched once in a while. also take your window switch panels out and check for loose wires.

Get a jumper lead.and connect one clamp to something metal on engine and other end on negative terminal on battery,thats minus - not positive + then try engine,sounds like bad earth or battery is not good,get a voltage reading off battery with a voltmeter anything less than 12.6v from cold before putting stuff on its a dying battery

Red pressure light is on in my 1994 Caddillac Fleetwood brougham

Check that you have good clean oil in the engine and that it is upto the upper mark on your dipstick.
The oil pump may not be functioning correctly or all may be fine and the oil sender is not funtioning correctly sending a false warning.
Whatever the case, it needs to be chexked immediately

see link below for mor information on warning lights

Interior lights will not turn off

have a load test done on the battery as it appears that it has a faulty cell. 2 hours for an internal light to flatten the battery indicates that the battery is no good as an interior bulb draws around 5 watts and on a good battery that would amount to around 24 hours usage. Besides all the other problems indicate a lower than required voltage.

Interior lights on

Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for a minute or two. Then re-connect cable and start the car. Good luck.
