The brake pressure accumulator.
Angela's 90Q20V did that; they replaced the accumulator under
warranty, and it got a lot better. 1-2 minutes is too long. It
does stay on for about 10-15 seconds, compared to the 2-3 seconds
for the rest and 5-10 for the airbag.
My 100Q never stayed on that long: 5 seconds max. Dunno why....
