If you want to replace that just make a run to the JY and look for one, they should be nice enough to let you test it so you can be sure it runs correctly. Or you can get a new one from GM, but they run for about $100. There are some on ebay too, not sure how good they work. Sometimes there are OEM ones on ebay also.

Stuck brake light switch.
Stuck power lock somewhere.
You can check the glvoebox light by opening and quickly feel the bulb and area around it to see if it'* warm from being on for a long time. Of course it will heat up quickly after you open the govebox, but there'* a difference. Same for the trunk light. And you have an underhood light but I believe it'* wired in series with the headlights and only gets power when the headlights/parking lights are on.

well i fixed the entena to day, it was bent a little thats why it did not go down all the way so i bent it back. goes all the way down now, if that isnt it then ill check the others but its not the glovebox or the trunk light i checked.
