Low brake fluid. That's why it's doing it under acceleration.

Re: e brake light

i'm with this guy ^^^^^^^^^

make sure before it starts sucking air, also check for leaks as to why it would be low (should that be the case)

Re: e brake light

anywhere in the braking system, could be a rotted line starting to go, loose brake line connection, someone forgot to fully tighten bleeder screw during brake service, etc......

What about pumping your brakes. I have that habit. Where I just press press and press until the pedal doesn't go down anymore. Could this cause harm?

Re: e brake light

just pumping the brakes during what? just randomly sitting there? if so then no, it won't hurt anything
