Rear brakes locking up when wet. Now abs light and service light and traction control light all coming on abs cutting in quite often even when it's not wet or slippery

Sounds like possibly your emergency brake cable got stuck at one point in time, its probably wearing your brakes down horribly. Also your rear brake calipers may have gone bad and are partially stuck closed.

ABS and TRAC lights are on

This could be and indicator that an abs sensor has gone bad or intermittently losing its signal. This may require replacement of a bearing hub asembly in which the abs sensor is incorporated into.The traction control uses the abs to control slipping when traction is limited. If the abs becomes disabled the traction control does as well.

Service lights come on when I step on the gas.

These lights are indicating that a fault(s) exists in the systems that u have indicator lights for, they are warning lights, there are 100's of reasons (an eng miss is just one) for the check engine light to be on, and dozens for the traction control and ABS lights. U need to have the dealer or other shop test the systems for the system trouble codes that are stored in the memory of the control modules whenever these light come on, until the system is tested for these codes it would all be guess work and possible wasted money on parts that are not defective, have the test run and post the codes back on fixya

Bonnie, this is the traction control light, there is many reasons why this could be on. The easiest way to turn it off is to pull the emergency brake, this would usually disengage the traction control. This is not, however, a fix to your problem as to why it is on.
