Re: ABS brakes are locked
Sounds like you have a problem here,big time .Sorry to scare you but it sounds like your brakes have frozen with moisture where you have parked with the handbrake on in sub zero temperatures.You will need to either put a commercial blow heater in front of it or try to drag it inside a heated garage.

Timbo, Sounds like the right back brake hardware may be damaged or seizing. Take in for free inspection at some larger repair places. To show your appreciation press the helpful button and follow me on fixya for more tips and info.
Have you changed anything recently? This is related to the ABS module and PCM mismatching. Have you replaced a tire recently or rims or brakes? If you have different sized tires on the front than you do on the rear it will throw this code, causing the ABS light to come on
I would say it is more likely that your wheel bearing hub locked up and caused the light to come on. You could have a severe brake fault too. Either one you should have had some noises or other indicators of the problem. Good luck, don't drive the vehicle until you get to a garage.
Yes this happened to me. And it is the brakes. Someone probably put it on wrong, or the lugs aren't tight enough. If that isn't it then you need to get tires balanced and rotated because what happens is if you put two new tires on one side and not the other side then the car is off balance and that can cause a lot of issues. It could be related to something else but if this happened as soon as you changed tires then that's the culprit. Hope this helps solve your problem. Put a post up what the problem was so everyone will know. Goodluck!
Check the electro-hydraulic control unit mounted on the left side frame underneath the cab. Its made up of the brake pressure modulator valve (bpmv) and the electronic brake control module (ebcm). This controls hydraulic pressure to the brake calipers to prevent wheel lock up. Also check the abs sensor mounted on the transfer case.
I suppose they could have been a little rough with it and diconnected the wire to the speed sensor or possibly craked your tone ring. none the less it needs to be hooked up to a professional scanner to say what it is for sure. I would suggest they pay for it. also you now have no ABS just normal braking. antime the ABS light is on you have NO ABS. hope this helps.
When the ABS light comes on that means that the sytem has a problem and whenever light is on the system is in-operable. Most of the time there is a problem with one of the wheel speed sensor. On this particular vehicle there are(4) abs/speed sensors (one in each wheel)basically the all tell the computer what speed that particular wheel is going, at anytime. This sensor is mounted on/in the wheel hub and gets its signal from a gear mounted in the hub or and axle in the hub with a gear on it. When the sensor sends a signal to the computer that the wheel is about to skid/lock-up it pumps the brakes 15 times per second to prevent it from locking up. I believe that the sensor on the right rear wheel is not working and therfore it locks up. Good Luck and contact me if you need more help. Please leave me a fixya if I fixed ya.
