battery light dim w/ key OFF sometimes

Hi everyone. I've got a 99 Sable and now and then in the morning I find the battery light glowing faintly. Hit the key on and off, it goes out. What could ba making that contact intermittently? I think it is being drained when the light is on. (Maybe from more that just the bulb). Sure like some education on this. Thanks.

Sounds like could be faulty ignition switch ? but other possible causes .Have had similar faults over the years with alternator / plug wiring connector on some cars .
