96 Seville SLS Electrical Problems???

Just bought this car about a month ago. Aside from the ghost that seems to live in it I really love this car!!! About 2 weeks after I got the car the blower motor went out? That's what they told me. No problem. Had it replaced. When I got it back it was louder than before (you could really hear it) but it worked so OK. Today -- two weeks later- - blower motor out again. Is there something else I can check? I am no mechanic but am not one of these gals that can't do a thing for herself. Other things that make me think this is some sort of electrical issue: Last time the blower motor went out the brake lights would come on when I cut the car off. If I tap them they go off. I did have to replace the battery before discovering that the lights were staying on. Followed by a few necessary jumpstarts! When the blower motor was replaced this resolved itself. Now bm is out again and guess what? Lights are coming back on. Also the driver window will always roll down but intermittently will not roll back up. Please help! Could be just a bad bm that I got (I do tend to have luck like that occasionally) but with the light issues it makes me think there is something else going on. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Just some possibilities, brake light switch sticking? climate control module bad?(has blower motor been tested after removal?),and poor connection,switch, or window motor.

Another thing to be aware of is the routing of the spark plug wires. On those cars, if the spark plug wires get too close to the blower motor, it can damage it. It could be the possibility of why it failed, and failed again!

Has blower motor been bench checked? Could also be a problem with the climate control module. The window problem is probably unrelated to the other,possibly a switch or connection problem.
