comment Daytime running light failure — one side only
New info is very helpful! I edited my answer a bit. Bad grounding is well known for making things act in all sorts of miraculous ways. Quick question: do you know where the DRL relay is or were you simply speculating that one might exist and it might be bad?

comment Emergency brake light always on
Your emergency brake should be on a different system than the brake pedal. Where is the switch for the light that you managed to turn off, and what engages it?

What are the colors of the wires coming into the bulb? I expect one to be black, the other to be green-white and then something unknown.

I'm curious, did the mechanic explain why the problems with the rear brakes result in uneven wear on the front pads?

I believe he said he already flushed the radiator and the oily stuff came back.

Why did the battery die? Did you leave your lights on overnight? If not, your alternator may be failing.

ok so I can rule out both mounts and axles (both recently replaced). This really points inside the transmission, correct?
