Pump running on and off without the brakes being touched is a symptom of an internal leak in the brake modulator. Often caused by rust where old brake fluid that has absorbed water has been left in there. A full flush with new DOT 4 fluid might cure it, otherwise you'll need to strip and rebuild the modulator.

You can easily check for an internal leak. Disconnect and plug the hose from the reservoir to the pump. Rig up a temporary reservoir to feed the pump and switch on the ignition. If the pump running fills the original reservoir, then you have an internal leak.
