Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
I believe my 2005 suburban brakes are stuck. When i give gas in drive it acts like brake is stuck. It's not the parking brake but the regular anti lock brakes
First chock all wheels , with key on engine off jack up one wheel at a time to clear road surface, remove that wheels chock only and try to turn wheel with hands , reset chock and move to next wheel do same thing continue till all wheels are tested
now if all wheels move you got a transmission problem
if one or two wheels locked they need brakes repaired
if all wheels are locked u got a gm abs motor pack problem

Alot of things could cause it. If your brakes are binding, then your brake caliper should be inspected to see if the pistons returns or not. Also the flex hose should be checked.
There is a possibility that you need to calibrate the steering angle sensor and the yaw rate sensor. If you have your abs light ON on your instrument cluster, kindly run a scan on the chassis.

SOURCE: front brakes are sticking on
Ok Have you recently replaced the pads? Do they act normal after they cool down? Are the pads in good condition, pads that are so worn that the caliper pistons come out beond their normal limit may stick there due to excessively worn pads. If so make sure they are at least factory grade quality Good are bendix, the only thing that can cause your symptoms is a bad master cylinder because it affects BOTH front calipers equally if it was a caliper it is likely to affect only ONE. Let me ask you this happens after driving in heavy traffic or after along drive?
If So there have been countless cases of boiling brake fluid, Old Brake Fluid gathers moisture and its boiling point is lowered, Fluch out ALL the old brake fluid and have new put it.
also is there any chance even the slightest chance that something other than brake fluid even a drop or two is enough to do damage. has been added to the master cylinder at any time? If so you need to replace EVERY PART IN THE BRAKE SYSTEM INCLUDING THE ABS CONTROLLER THAT HAS ANY RUBBER PIECES IN IT CALIPERS HOSES WHEEL CYLINDERS,MASTER CYLINDER just for your information.
I believe you have a bad master cylinder but do not buy a rebuilt one only bran new and preferably from the dealer.
Please contact me if you need more help and would you give me a good rating if you feel my information is helpful.
Thank you ,Randy

SOURCE: left front caliper keeps locking
sounds like the flex line is crushed inside alowing the caliper to apply but not release.
The best way to tell is to pump up the brake pedal and get the caliper to lock up. Open the bleeder screw. If the wheel suddenly become easy to turn, the flex line is wrecked. If it is still hard to turn, there is a problem with your caliper.

SOURCE: 2005 parking brake stuck
The parking brake cable should be replaced but in the short term try getting under the truck and grabbing the cable casing and move them around to get the seized cable inside the cable casing to release keep working the cable until it releases if this doesn't work replace both cables.
