I have a 2005 ram 1500 4x4.when i put it four wheel drive high it feels like its in low and back tire on driver side skids


There's something seriously wrong in the transfer case or controls. It seems the rear driveshaft is locked up, and the front wheels are driving. The driver's side rear tire is skidding because it's trying to turn backward - rear passenger rear tire is going forward and rear differential has no option but to turn the driver tire in reverse (driveshaft locked). DON'T TRY TO DRIVE IT. Get it checked out and fixed.

My 1998 buick centry locks up the brakes when i reverse. only in reverse, and only when i touch the brakes. it will reverse fine till i hit the brakes then all wheels lock. this does not happen in dri


Are you sure it is all 4 wheels locking up? I have a 1998 Century and had the same problem, it is due to moisture getting on the rear brake shoes, this makes them "stick" to the drum cold and lock the wheels, the newer brake shoe friction material has been improved to avoid this so called "stickson" problem in moist cold weather.

HI I have a1989 chevy p/u c-1500 sometimes backing out of my driveway the rear right tire locks up the wheel cylinders and rear lines are new brake shoes and drums are good I though it was the emergency...


With the older drum brake system going in reverse will often tighten the adjuster on the brake mechanism. The adjuster has a thumb wheel to adjust the shoes in and out. BUT there should be a little plate that locks the thumb wheel once you are where you want it to be. I would guess that either you don't have that little plate or it is not keeping that thumb wheel from turning on the right side.

Does my truck have abs brakes? It is 4x4 1992 chevy 1500


Your truck is equipped with RWAL or rear wheel anti-lock. This just worked on the rear brakes(duh) but the speed sensor was taken from the speedometer drive at the transmission tailshaft, and would allow one rear wheel to lock as long as the speedo kept turning. Later models were improved with wheel speed sensors at each wheel.

I have a 1992 Chevy 1500 4x4 the right rear wheel has locked up. I took the brake drum off and it looked like the brake shoes are not releaseing. What would cause that?


frozen or engaged parking brake cable or possible bad brake hose but that would cause both to lock is the other wheel cylinder leaking? that would releave pressure from the wheel . a fluid leak (axle seal or cylinder) can cause the locking feeling because it slips then catches when the fluid wears off hope this helps
