Driver's side rear light assembly filling with water. After searching online, this appears to be a very common issue. Could result in failure of rear lights and possible accident.

Brake lights not working and was almost rear ended. Hazard switch is stuck. After checking online this appears to be a very common problem related to the multi-function switch. It appears that GM is waiting for a few fatalities to occur before taking any action!!

2002 Grand Prix. All 3 rear brake lights out at once/hazard light button jammed. Almost got rear-ended a few times. Going to repair in near future. Check numerous websites noting hundreds of complaints regarding the same problem. Needs new multi-function switch.
