First, if the brake oil light is blinking in the console, check out the oil level switch that's attached to the brake oil reservoir. Also check the handbrake lever/switch.

Second, water in oil is NEVER good. If you found water in the engine oil, check it out at your nearest company workshop. Perhaps you just have a leaky head gasket.

Third; which car do you have? Might be easier to diagnose if you specified the model.

please specify what car u drive ...water (condensed or not) should not be present in the oil at any stage. please get the oil changed.

I really don't understand..
How did you check water in transmission oil?
How can water condense in brake oil?
How do you see water droplets?

Is there no water in engine oil then?
