Definitely sounds like a dodgy earth, but not necessarily in the dashboard - I had a similar problem with the dashboard light for the rear fogs coming on whenever I used the brakes or indicators - was eventually traced to a bad earth in one of the rear light clusters.

It's an easy fix providing you know where the dodgy connection actually is
