The high-mounted brake light on the 9-5 wagon is LEDs. I remember some of the LEDs quit working on one of my wagons a number of years ago. I took the light apart and discovered some salt water had gotten in and corroded the circuit board. Some soldering solved the problem. If the light comes apart, some testing with a voltmeter and ohmmeter should give you some clues. Generally, LEDs only require a power source and a current limiting resistor. First check for voltage and the ground to the fixture. I've often thought, with the proliferation of LED lights on cars, owners are going to be hit with a bill for hundreds to replace a fixture rather than a $2 bulb. I guess the folks who always drive cars on warranty or lease don't care and like the bling.
