I'm 99.99999% cartain it's the adjustment of the hand brake.  It's always 
been very tight (no play in the hand brake), such that the slightest pulling up 
on the lever lets you feel tension -- and the light goes on as soon as you 
begin pulling up.  When the red light is off, you can pull up a very tiny amount 
and the light starts to illuminate (flickers at times) and of course, if you 
pull it up more, the light stays on solid (no flickering).  The reason it dims 
or flickers is that the switch is half on/half off (no-man's land).  

I plan on seeing if I can adjust it in the cabin.  Any suggesions as to how 
to access the cable where it connects to the lever?  (Is there an easy way to 
pull up the between-seats console to expose this connection)?
