Brakes locked up ran through stop sign 04 santa fe

While driving, my brakes locked up and I ran through a stop sign, nearly hitting two vehicles. I have a 04 santa fe, left it in the parking lot and the hyundai dealership picked it up for service. They said they drove it without any problems, and had two service technicians go through it and found no problems.

My vehicle had been sitting all day, while I was with my sister shopping. when I got in to drive it, and got to the stop sign I could not stop, I had to put it in neutral to let it coast to a stop, still pressing on the brake, which was stiff. Once stopped, I put it in reverse and accelerate a little then braked, but still had the same problem with the brakes. Once I was clear of traffic, I put it back in forward and drove slowly to the parking area and left it there. There was no noise. I do not feel safe driving it especially with my child in the vehicle.

When was the last time that you had your brakes repaired or replaced? You might want to consider the fact that your car is from the year 2004 and whether or not you have ever had them looked at. My roommate recently got in a very bad car crash because she hadn't had them checked on ever. Like you, her brakes kept locking up and she continuously ignored it. Right now, your vehicle probably isn't safe, but after getting your brakes repaired it should be. Best Brake Repair More in Statesboro GA

Santa Fe makes jerking motions

the air conditioning changes your idle speed when the compressor cycles on and in some vehicles will cause the problem you have.
