Default 2010 overdrive problems

When it rains or the truck gets wet from washing, I have problems with the overdrive disengaging when I touch the brakes, not much of a problem at low speeds but annoying as all get out, has any one dealt with a problem like this?

You mean torque converter lockup?

Not sure what you mean by, "You mean torque converter lockup?" But this is the case. Washed engine compartment, drove home and everytime I braked the overdrive would turn off, once the compartment dried the problem stopped. We had a lot of rain this past week and the same problem occurred. Not sure if it's a short/loose wire or a bad relay switch. today when I drove it (again rainy) the same problem and more, ABS, brake and traction control lights came on and turn signals stopped working.
