This is likley to be a sticky piston in the brake caliber,,,stirp the brakes out on both sides of the car and free off the pistons by cleaning them first then pushing them right back into the calibers chace that the caliber is free to slide as well use copper grease on the caliber pins and on the "back" of the brake pads,, check there is plenty of life left in the pads if not fit a new set to "both sides" dont just fix one side do both sides or the car wont stop in a strate line or may pull to one side!

Worn front brake pads. Replace them soon & that is why the light comes on at times since the fluid level is low

Is there grease nipples around wheels of caravan


Is it a brake squeak? Some vehicles have a little metal tab on the brakes that starts squeaking when they get close to needing to be replaced. When you push the brake, the sound may go away due to the pressure being applied. Check your front brake pads.

WHEEL SQUEAKS WHEN DRIVING


There is a small metal tab on the brake pad made to make noise
when the brakes are close to worn out,the noise goes away under
braking,I suspect the pads are in need of replacement.Make sure
the rear brakes get checked for proper adjustment at the same time.

I believe you have drum brakes on the rear of your Caravan, & it sounds like you have a wheel cylinder leaking, it will have to be replaced. This is what it looks like. Parts & labor to do a rear brake job should run around $220.00....Shop around and get a few estimates. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Warranty should be taking care of this problem, but look for missing or damaged rubber parts in the 'anti-roll-bar' mechanism and the rear shock absorber ends. It would help to identify which end of the car it is coming from. Make sure the sliding doors fit tightly. Try 'bouncing' the van at each corner to help identify the noise. The front struts could have an internal problem. Try shaking the front and rear wheels when on the hoist. Hope this helps!

Rear open hatch. Remove 2 retaining pop fasteners, turn taillight towards outside of van. Don't break hook(tab) on the light assembly. Squeeze the tab on bulb pull bulb straight out. Check hook grommet on van. Replace if cracked can cause water leak on van

Check the large hose leaving the brake power booster (under the hood, directly in front of where the driver sits, large round diaphragm). That hose will run into the top of your engine, it may be off, or the hose may be cracked.

Do you own a test light? Check for power at wires behind socket? Clean socket good , check contact spots for bulb & clean any rusty side of the socket with emery cloth, or sandpaper, for good contact also.
