While driving steering wheel & Break locked up

I have Volkswagen Passat 2003. Looks like car battery went down completely this even and jump start did not help to start the car. I had to call insurance to start the car with booster battery. When I drove the car back to home, after two miles, suddenly the power in the car shut off completely and I felt like steering wheel and breaks are locked up. I had to use hand break to stop the car. After stopping the care I cannot rotate the steering wheel and break looked very harder. May i know the reason for this issue?

SOURCE: Toyota Camry 2000, break problem inconsistent

Could be a number of things. A lot of times the ABS sensors at the wheels get dirty. This is due to them being magnetic and a lot of brake pads are semi metallic so the dust sticks to the sensors and makes them fuction a little weird. Have someone clean the sensors. I try to pressure wash them everytime I wash the car. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2002 tahoe breaks lock up during driving

i would check front and rear brakes if rears are drum brakes i would inspect springs and hardware making sure everthing is conected and in place also make sure they are adjusted properly in the front and if rear disc i would make sure to grease caliper slides these allow caliper to move and its important that all moving brake parts are free push caliper pistons in alittle to see if they are sized or not booster is ok and most of the time when master goes it will leak where it meets booster and you will have a low brake pedal or no brakes

SOURCE: break goes down lower then normal but the breaks

I it is usually the brake shoe adjusters at the rear.

Auto adjust type:
To adjust them you can hold your foot hard down on the brake pedal and wrech up the park brake lever a few times

Manual adjust
Drums off and wind the adjuster cog to increase the diametre of the shoes, don't get carried away thow or the drum wont go back on

Regards

Lloyd

So what do you have for voltage at the battery? Sounds like the alternator went bad. There should be around 14 volts at the battery with the engine running. Anything less and the alternator would be the first thing I suspected.

Check the Cold Cranking Amps on the Battery that you have. Normally the Cheaper the Battery the Lower the Cold Cranking Amps. I Recommend getting an "Interstate Battery" . It costs a Little more But has a Warranty and the Cold Cranking Amps that you need. They have never let me Down!
