My abs brakes failed when I was pulling up to a red light in the rain causing me to rear-end another driver. The approximate speed was less than 20 mph, and my Passport pulled to the right as I was stepping on the brake. The check engine light came on blinking prior to impact after I had stepped on the brake, and went solid after I hit the other driver. I took the car into the Honda dealership who has been servicing my vehicles for over 4 years. They have determined that the check engine light was not related to the accident, and was caused by the master cylinder resetting itself. They find no issue with the brake system, and say there isn't a defect. However, I was driving home from the accident and the brakes failed to engage 2 more times with a pull to the right. Both times were on wet roads in drizzle conditions when the vehicle was going less than 20 miles per hour. This occured again, same weather conditions on 1 November, again with the car going less than 20 mph and again pulling to the right. This situation cannot be reproduced when the weather conditions are dry, and sometimes cannot be reproduced in the rain either. In the accident of 27 October, the bumper of the Passport was damaged more on the front right than on the left. Which supports the stick and slide that I have felt each time the brakes fail to engage. I would like to know if anyone else has had this problem, and if so, what can I do to fix it? I don't feel safe or trust my car anymore while driving.

Slowing to make right turn, braking over ripples in road; abs failed-brakes went to floor and vehicle did not stop; proceeded about 10' further then braking would have provided. Similar problems in past have been reported to NHTSA and Honda dealer. Dealer checked vehicle per Honda directions; found nothing wrong.
