No, not at all. Different symptom, different cause.

^ This. It's usually cause by corrosion/moisture. I can get worse or better depending on conditions and almost always cured by simply removing and re-installing the sensor.

The sensor is ON when it's as bright as when you first turn the key to the 'on' position before the engine starts. Anything less bright is cause by a poor ground between sensor and block.
