It sounds like the sensor on the parking brake cable is faulty or out of adjustment. I would check there first. Here is the replacement procedure:

Parking Brake Indicator Switch Replacement

Removal Procedure

Caution: Unless directed otherwise, the ignition and start switch must be in the OFF or LOCK position, and all electrical loads must be OFF before servicing any electrical component. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent an electrical spark should a tool or equipment come in contact with an exposed electrical terminal. Failure to follow these precautions may result in personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.

  1. Remove the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the electrical connector.
  3. Remove the retainer from the switch.
  4. Remove the parking brake indicator switch from the vehicle.

Installation Procedure

  1. Connect the parking brake indicator switch to the vehicle.
  2. Connect the retainer to the switch.
  3. Install the retaining screw.

    Tighten:

    Tighten the retaining screw to 4[n-m] (35 lb in).

  4. Install the electrical connector.
  5. Install the negative battery cable.
