Brakes Part 2

So awhile back my brake lines gave out due to corrosion. I had them all replaced along with 2 new front calipers. I get it back and start tearing the interior out to rhinoline it. I notice for some odd reason my e-brake bracket it leaning to the right a little. Stupid as I am I hammer it back to the left. When all said and done I notice my brake light on. With the advice of members here I checked the grounds and it still came on intermitently. I brought it back to the mechanic (very trusted) and he told me a day later it was fixed. Drive it home no problems. Its been sitting a week and I drive it today. I start it up and the brake light is very dim. Brakes feel fine like before. Drive it around it gets brighter and goes out and pops back on again. I was forced to slam on my brakes and the light went out. Stopped at a stop sign and it was bright again. Any ideas? Could their be less power/pressure in the line cause they are new / maybe bigger / or longer. Is their such things as a brake booster that I can put in it? My main concern is that my son rides in it sometimes. I don't want the brakes failing when he's in it. Thanks in advance for the help.

The light will go in if either your fluid is low or your brake is on or barely clicked on. In the handle is a switch for the light. Any contact which could have come from you bending it back in place could be illuminating it. In all if your fluid is good your ebrake takes a bit of travel to engage and may just need an adjustment on the cable underneath your rig.
