This could be one of two things, either your engine is not getting up to running temperature and is operating in warm up mode which would require you to replace the thermostat. The second possible problem is the throttle position sensor on your accellerator needs ajustment.

Why does the interior brake light blink?

could be a problem with the sesor in the emergency brake. a bad connection there could cause the light to blink with the vibration of the car running On some cars, the brake warning light will blink if the parking brake is set, and you drive... it could be a failed parking brake switch, assuming the brake is not applied. It is supposed to blink to get your attention. One car that does this is the Mitsubishi Starion, there are probably some others, too.
