Make sure you block the front wheels and leave the car in gear before attempting to lift it. Raise the rear of the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands. Check for a binding parking brake cable for whichever tire is locked up. Remove the wheel that is locked up. If it's got drum brakes, remove the small rubber plug on the inside of the drum and use two flat screwdrivers to loosen the brake adjuster until you can get the drum off. Check the pads and the drum for excessive wear. Check the wheel cylinder for leaks and replace it if necessary. Check all the springs as well. If any of the springs are damaged, replace all of them (spring kits are only a few dollars). If it has disc brakes, check the pads and rotor for excessive wear. Remove the brake caliper and try to compress it (you will probably need a special tool for this, also only a few dollars at any parts store). If it is frozen, you need to replace the caliper. NOTE: if you replace any wheel cylinder or caliper, you will need to bleed the brake system before attempting to drive! Also, what is done to one side of your brakes should be done to the other at the same time. After all, those parts have most likely been on the car for the same amount of time, and it's imperative to keep the braking force even on both sides for safety's sake. Hope this helps.

Can i manualy take it out of 4x4

Those older fords you have to put the 4x4 selector into 2H or 2 High on the floor shifter. Then go to the front tires and in the very center of the tire there will be a knob that say Locked and Unlocked. Turn the knob to unlocked on both sides. Then you will not have front wheel dragging on the drive train and only the rear wheels will be the drive tire. TO put it back in 4x4. Turn the knob back to locked on each front tire and put the truck in 4H or 4 High to get 4x4. Only use 4L or 4Low when your stuck to prevent spinning your tires with full power.

Now if your has the automatic locking hubs I would switch them out with manual ones because the automatic ones were problematic where they get stuck or not work at all. It requires replacing the locking hub assembly which isn't that hard to do.

The back tires seem to be locked up an unwilling to move i tried moving car back and forth to see if the would just unlock but didnt work any ideas what the problem could be an how to fix

remove back tires to see if the brakes or what is locking up rearend. If it's just the rears then you could have a parking brake problem. also check e- brake cable for locking up. its hard to say without being there. check out rear brakes could be anything.

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan spare tire won't come down , the cable does come down

Raise it back up, the cable has a small end that must go up into the bracket to release the lock. With the weight of the tire on the cable the lock will release. You may need to kick the tire a few times to make sure it is hanging and not stuck. When it comes down, you'll se how it works (really dumb design) I had one where after lowering the tire to check the pressure, it would not go all the way back up. There is a grooved pulley that pulls the cable up, and if the cable jumps a groove, it will not pull the tire all the way up. The only way I got it back up was to cut a window on the side of the housing and reset the cable and wound it back 1/2 way.

Press the brake then my rear tires brakes keep locking

it just happenned to me with my ford f-150 1997, turned out to be the rubber hose that was clogged so it couldn't relieve the pressure in the lines....

it should be located on top on the differential if you don't have disc brakes on the back.... but if it is disc brakes you should have a rubber hose on each side....
