It goes away also if you just barely push brake pedal down it goes away and if you tap it a few times and let yu r foot off slow you can get it to stop

Hi travisty79,

Seems the brake booster is leaking vacumn and indication it is failing. Get it checked as the brake efficiency would be affected when the booster fails.
