    Really need to have your Brake System inspected by a Pro, it could be an ABS issue or the beginning of a Hydraulic issue ( not safe! ) or just a parking brake switch that is broken, but have some one who really knows look at this. Your brakes are a key safety system. Don't mess around with this.
