You either have a reed or thermal limiter switch that is bad or a switch that is bad. The only way to determine it is with a meter. I think that this job is better left to a professional unless you know how to use a volt/ohm meter.

Temporary solution to turn off the indicator lamp - put a wet rag with an ice pack on top on the middle section of the cooktop.
The thermal sensor will trip off the lamp.

The red light is on as a safety to let you know the surface is hot. When the light goes out the surface will be safe to touch with out getting a bad burn.

I had the same problem, but I found out it was only when one particular burner was turned on. I waited for the problem burner to cool, then took the fist of my hand and tapped on the burner itself and the light goes out every time. Works like a charm..probably a loose connection with that one burner.

The All Off cooktop touch control turns off the downdraft exhaust
system and all surface cooking areas that are in use at the same
The Lock cooktop control avoids unintended use of the surface
cooking areas. When the cooktop is locked out, the surface
cooking areas cannot be turned on by the cooktop touch
To Lock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad
for 4 seconds. After 4 seconds, ALL OFF/LOCK will glow red,
indicating that the cooktop controls are in the lockout position.
To Unlock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad
