Abs light went on after getting wet due to rain on the pavement. Apparently has shorted out something. From what I've read, this is a common problem. Also, the dash light representing a turn signal burn out went on, but the turn signals are all functioning properly.

At drive-through, radio suddenly quit, and the abs and brake lights came on. Right turn signal came on, vehicle began to pulsate and surge. Pulled over and shut van off, would not restart, lights and hazards began flashing and would not turn off. Retried ignition, lights and hazards went off, van completely died. Informed to replace battery, had battery tested, it was fine. Replaced battery, followed instructions to reset computer after battery replacement. Had to drive van 10 miles to complete, during which abs and brake light came on, headlights quit (after dark) then began flashing. Turn signal came on to signal right turn on its own. Just before returning home, headlights quit entirely, and airbag light came on. Parked van, let it idle, and the tachometer surged from 500rpms to 3000rpms. Seems to fit descriptions others are saying about abs and speed control module underneath master cylinder getting soaked with brake fluid.

Right side (passenger) front marker light has a grounding problem. I changed the bulb twice and the problem still occurs. The light stays on for no reason and the onboard computer shows that all lights are fine. If you bang it will go out.

The problem is that the turn signal lever will not lock into the "on" position if the steering wheel is turned more than 20 or 30 degrees. This situation occurs virtually all the time under the circumstances described.
