Front brakes are grabing, rear brakes are not, the cable to the rear brakes are not moving either? I tried to bleed the rear brakes, but the cable didn't appear to be moving. At this time the front brakes are all thats stoping the car? What could be the problem?

Have you tried to bleed the brakes,it sounds like you have air in the system. I would try bleeding the brakes first ,start with the wheel farthest from the master cyl. The right rear,left rear,right front left front. If that does'nt help check the master cyl and brake booster.
replace the brake hose they get what is called a fissure inside hose and it will act like a check valve you hit brake pedal and when you let off brake pedal the fissure inside hose will hold pressure on caliper i see it all the time next time it locks up open the bleeder screw on caliper and the wheel will free up because you release the pressure that can,t go thru hose
actually you may not need to replace any parts. from what you are explaining on the vehicle you have a air lock in your brake lines. try and bleed the brakes again starting from the rear passenger than the drivers passenger than the passengers front and last the drivers front. than disconnect the negative battery cable for about 5 min to reset the lights and see what happens. please let me know if you need more assistance with this problem. please do not forget to rate and comment about your expereince with fixya today.
try this. open the two bleeder screw at the rear calipers. leave it open untill the fluid drips generously. close the bleeder. try the brakes. if it works bleed it the nornal way. note: make sure you dont run out of fluid in the master cylinder
Chk. to see if you got vacume to break booster, If there is than i would say the booster is bad. When you have to push hard on break peddel means either the booster is bad or there is no vacume to booster. I really don't understand the secound part of your question, Do you mean there are no bleeders on the rear breaks? or you can't get fluid to bleeders in the rear? If you can't get any fluid to the rear breaks, you could have a master cyl. problem too.
