I recommend comparing the displayed oil sump level to your own van’s dipstick level.
My van’s sensor displays these numbers: (confirmed during oil change and refill; Red handled dipstick)

Red or yellow handle?

Well, I checked the datalog and I dont see any wheel speed differences more than a few %. Im not sure exactly what is happening to cause the brake light when its wet outside. Is there a way for this to read brake system codes out?

Are you getting the ASR lamp (spinning wheel, below the fuel gauge) or the Break Pads Wear lamp below the tach?

My break wear lamp comes on occasionally in damp conditions. I’ve always assumed the wet sensor gets bridged by the water and grounds out to the rotor, setting off the lamp... I inspect the pads during seasonal tire swaps and have plenty of material left on the pads.

(and no, I haven’t provided a driver for the CAB’s k-line, nor have I yet programmed anything to communicate with it)

Dunno if it's possible in your case, but in mine, i had water intrusion into the tail lights in the rain. It would pool in some of the 'bulb compartments' and cause issues from corrosion and bulbs burning out.
I drilled small drain holes in the bottom of the sections and put a water shield at the top made of scrap plastic.
my brake errors went away after that. It never turned the brake light on though.

Ooohh, I had no idea it had such a thing, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for that. Now I guess I gotta figure out why my cruise control stopped working another way. I thought it was something wrong with the brakes that was kicking it out of CC.

ASR (traction control) and ESP (stability) will both kick the cruise control off if they detect wheel spin. Tapping the brakes also disengages cruise...
If your wheel speed sensor logs look okay I’d check your brake switch. First thing I’d try is recalibrating the switch stem: crawl under, push pedal down with one hand, then pull the brake switch stem out to its full travel (it will make ratcheting clicks...) and release the pedal back against the switch stem (it will ratchet back firmly against the pedal in the OFF position)
