If there is ABS on the car it is the ABS detecting the difference inthe wheel RPM that is triggering off the brake light.
so not to worry as this happens and specially if your brake fluids are full.
The other reason is the momentum is setting off the brake fluid sensor to switch on .

My 1981 ford f100 brake light comes on when I come to a stop but goes off when I start accelerating?

check the brake fluid level, there is a float in the resavor when you stop all the fluid moves to the frount of the resavor causing the float to drop and turn on the light. fill the master cylinder with DOT 3 brake fluid.

My dash brake light comes on every now and then? is my flied low? how do I check the level?

check the master cylinder fluid level as it maybe low also there is a fluid level sensor and sometimes they get stuck and if you tap it a few times it will rise to the proper level.this can turn on the light.also if the fluid is quite low then have the brakes checked as the fluid goes down as the brakes wear and they may need replacing.

Lately the brake light comes on for no apparent reason. Sometimes, it is right after a red light, & I've just accelerated. Any clue? Thanks!

Check the fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir (master cylinder). A slightly low level will set the light off as the fluid is being rushed backward during acceleration. When this fluid is rushed back, the level of fluid is probably dipping below the desired level therefore setting the light off.

Brake light comes on dash when brakeing then off with acceleration

hi 1st thing to check is the brake fluid level is topped up as the reservoir has a sensor fitted to cap so as brake pads/shoes wear the fluid is displaced from reservoir to compensate cylinders hence fluid level falls and puts light on as you brake ? also possibility is that your pads may be fitted with low brake pads warning indicators/wires which also puts same light on as you brake and goes off when you let off to accelerate ? check both of these possibilities if you req more help/advice by all means come back with info

Hello... I would recommend checking for a frozen (stuck) rear brake, a mis-adjusted emergency brake light switch, a stuck or sticking parking brake cable or a mis-adjusted brake pedal rachet lock which is the locking mechanism that holds down the brake pedal. Remember it could be multiple problems.

Good Luck..
