Hello, I am Jose Sebastian. Your automotive expert, It's a pleasure to me to attend your question. Thank you very much for trust in just answer.

Dear customer, from what you tell me, the brake light seems to be on constantly, only with differences in intensity, this might be because the switch may be giving problems sending a direct signal or you have problems at the fuses and relays, it can also be simply a false contact that is making the electrical wiring. As your model is 2003 is likely that you already have some corrosion stored in the connections.
Therefore, my recommendation is that you start checking the state of the connections near the parking brake, check the wiring very well as well and replace the sensor if it continues to give problems, it would be good if before proceeding with this revision you start by checking the state of the fuses to make sure there are no problems.
