    Are you saying that with the vehicle on a lift, the brakes are "applied", and all 4 wheels are not turning?

Brakes all 4 lock up steering wheel shakes above

OK, when the ABS module is unplugged, the same results. That tells me that the ABS system is not working properly.
Did they look into the master cylinder and other abs related components?
Any ABS codes on it?

If steering wheel shakes above 50 mph that's likely to be the tires on it, rather than a brake problem.

Have tires balanced and rotated and inspected for out of roundness that might cause vibration above 50 mph.

The rear wheels have been braked.

Why are they locked up, did someone push emergency brake, or has van been sitting for along time, or maybe a few days after a rain? Tried pulling ahead first?

Back wheels locked up, emergency brake did not appear to be on.

The drum brakes are to tight and they locked up have the druns adjusted or replaced, do not drive the car in this conditions as you can damage brakes, clutch and engine.
All you can do to try to release them is pushing a couple of times the pedal.
If you feel they are completely locked have a mechanic in site, or tow the car to a garage. If it unlocks check the brakes the same, it is likely they lock up again.
