    I was thinking maybe the rubber hose from the metal line to the caliper may have colapsed inside try replaceing the hose it will look ok from outside but inside no good.

I have a 96 oldsmoblie cirea it will shift but not engauge and front wheels are locked in place

unlock your front brakes first. if it's front wheel drive, with locked front brakes, it would shift but wont run or you burn your transmission clutch. if it is not front wheel drive, if transmission shifts, rear wheels should turn or spin.

Brakes are locked up!

Are the back brakes fine? How do the front brakes look? Another thing to remember is that one of your wheel bearings may have seized up thus locking up your wheel.

Front brakes locking up on 2007 Chevrolet equinox

There are many possible factors including incorrect parts, defective rotor - pads - actuator, improperly bled front brake line, improper maintenance practice during last service. Best to take the vehicle to a qualified mechanic as soon as possible for your and others safety. Tow if you feel it is unsafe to drive that distance. Best of luck.

Front brakes locking up after driving once it cools off will unlock

Have you checked GM, as well as repair shop data base
Bulletins for those brake issues?

Have you checked with professional scan tool in the
abs module for codes?

Who is replacing those parts & why?

Would seem more like an axle tone ring,wheel hub
tone wheel inside bearing hub,abs module needing to be reflashed
with an update or wheel speed sensors.

Abs light came on vehicle was pulling to the left, just replaced the cv axles both fronts, brake system is completely locked up cant move vehicle.

when locked try to relieve the brake line pressure by opening the bleeder on the wheel that is locked. if that unlocks the wheel then replace the hose for that wheel. if all wheels are locked then relieve the pressure at the master cylinder if that unlocked the wheels then you will need the flush out all the brake fluid with new clean Dot 4 fluid. and replace all the rubber in the brake system. the fluid was contaminated and caused the rubber parts the the brake system to swell. this would include the master cylinder, rubber hoses, wheel cylinder kits, calipers kits, ABS pump module.any part that has brake fluid in it. if you know that the wrong fluid has be put into the brake fluid .you may want to check with your car insurance company it may be covered .

I am facing a problem in fuel mileage my avalon showing is less..I filled the fuel tank full but it reads maximum 360kms & than start going down while running .I feel with full tank capacity it must...

If the fuel gauge is lowering as you drive,and the fuel is still in the tank,then I would gather that,the fuel gauge sending unit in the fuel tank is not working correctly,and needs to be replaced.Brake repair comes in replacing ,both front,and then both rear.The brake pads are purchased in sets,front set,and rear set.These sets service one axle.To inspect the brake pads,the brake pads will have a sensor,made of steel,that will move closer to the brake rotor as the brake pad has worn down.If the sensor(made of steel)touches the rotor,it will squeal.If it does this,it is time to change the brake pads.The sensor does not always work correctly,and will not squeal,or can not be heard.To look at the brake pads,to see if they are ready to be changed,there will be about a 1/8 inch of pad left,and it is time to do a brake job on that axle.Check both sides,left,and right wheels,if one side is worn more than the other,do the brake job.Removal of the brake pads is a good idea.This way,you can see if there is any cracking in the brake pad itself.This is to be done for the front,and the rear.The front brake pads will where out two,to three times compared to the rear.This would be normal.As respect to the horn sounding upon remote unlock,well,it should be operational,make sure the horn works,I hardly ever use mine,so I would think you would not either,but depending on where you live,right? So if it is not sounding upon key less remote,then The control box may have a bad circuit for that out put.Replacement of the control box might be the thing to do.To install the hardware to do this,would only take wire.Come off the actuator controlling the door lock on the drivers door,and go directly to the horn,you will get a short burst from the horn.The actuator in the door only requires one wire to unlock,and lock the door,this is all you need to sound the horn one time.The short beep beep,would require a delay relay to be installed. I hope this is what you needed as far as information,and if it was at all helpful,please let us know,thank you.
