    please stop shouting, the 3rd brake light is LED and not serviceable unless you are well versed in circuitry, it would probably be easier to find a used one than fix the broken one

    Well that's surely the best way to gain information from the masses. Do you write literature on people skills? I would be interested in reading it.

    It is online/forum etiquette. He simply was trying to make you aware of it. He also answered your question, so instead of insulting us and calling us freaks you could just say "Oh, ok, thank you. I was not aware of that." We do have lives, jobs, school and such, but we do try to take some time to come to the forums, discuss with each other about our cars, and answer questions people (such as yourself) may have.

    On another note, you may want to search for a used one. Car-Parts.com is a good place to search local yards.

    It's important to remember that many of the gurus here are current or ex-Cadillac technicians, and most have spent the day having their @ss chewed by a grumpy service manager, dealing with whining customers, working against a rate clock, cracking knuckles on cold steel, getting gas and oil dripped in the face, etc. They give of their expertise here without compensation, other than our respect and appreciation. One thing they don't want to do is have their time wasted, or write the same response to the same question day after day. It's a brand new problem to you. To them, it may be the hundredth time they've heard it this week.
