EPBV comes on while driving?

While I was trying to drive to school, the EPBV kept coming on while accelerating, then it would open back up when I let off the throttle.

I thought it was weird, because the coolant temp was at its normal operating temp, but it still kept closing and opening every few seconds.

Mine acted the same way, until I unplugged it. Never regretted it for a minute.

Is it safe to remove the gear access cover? I can't get the top part of the tube disconnected.
