Try bleeding the entire brake system and I would recommend using fresh brake fluid. Do the front brakes or rear brakes lock up? Perhaps the front calipers need to be worn in a bit since the car has been sitting for a while or the rear wheel cylinders need to be worn in as well. Parts tend to dry up when not used on a regular basis.

86 honda wagovan right rear wheel locked up

Not sure about the advice above...If your experiencing a rear wheel locking up, I've seen where the emergency brake cable is not releasing and is stuck. Best bet is to have someone operate the E-brake while you watch the cable underneath the car on the right side. If you don't see the cable retracting, clamp a pair of vice grips tightly onto the cable (away from where it could retract into the sheath) and tap the vice grips "away" from the wheel. This will "persuade" the cable to retract, therefore releasing the emergency brake. If that's it, don't use the emergency brake until you either lube it real well or replace it. Good luck!

Cannot move 2002 civic after rear end collision. Gear selector not working

There should be a shift interlock located in front or around the shifter, remove the little plastic cover and try inserting your key to diable the shift lock this is a safety feature that only lets the car go into gear with your foot depressed on the brake, sometimes doing this will enable your to shift the car into gear and reset it, hope this helps.
