Question: squeaky breaks

during the dry months my breaks are fine but the minute we get rain or wet streets my breaks squeak all the time when stopping and usually the brake lite and the abs lite stays on all the time...also sometimes when braking in wet conditions the brakes fail, its like they just stop working .they have done this since i have owned the van 6 years

You may need to replace the pads and or rotors. The pads may have not been installed with any anti-squeal on the pad backing (the spray type works the best)

The brake and abs lamp might be on for the same reason. Might be a bad abs control module, maybe a bad wheels speed sensor etc. Take it in and have the problem diagnosed.
