Nope they can not be removed or bypassed, the repair needs to be completed in order for the car to work properly

When was the last time the brake fluid was flushed? Sometimes the moisture content gets too high and just driving turns that moisture into steam and causes the brakes to apply on thier own, then you have to sit for a while until it cools off then you can go again for a while and it repeats all over. The other thing I have seen is the antilock motor relay gets stuck on and pressurized the whole system. So there's a few things to check.
