I've had some cars in the past with similar issues... The dimming dash lights upon braking turned out to be a weak battery. As the brake lights went on, it took power away from the dash lights. On another car, my dash lights would sometimes flicker. I found that the dimmer control was loose. Sometimes fiddling with that switch will help.
