If you have ABS then that system is not working. All 4 wheels will lock up if you slam on the brakes as you will over ride the brake equaliser in the lines

All four brakes lock up on my 2003 siverado 2500hd

check then pedal free play . That is the distance the pedal travels before the brake rod hits the piston in the master cylinder. If there is no play then there is a blockage in the compensating ports that is allowing a build up of pressure in the lines.

Anti lock brake light and buzzer on wonld like to know what to check for or look for

abs modules do work overtime on a car. they do brake down from time to time. all four wheels have sensors that regulate control, braking and stability of the car. the sensors could be faulty or the abs module is packing up. don't take it to the agents, they will rip you off. there are people that can overhaul this and you will be on your way. good luck

Emerg Brake is stuck and engaged, won't release -

ok then. the E-brake cable is not broken just stuck, the cables tend to get rusted and thgis happens all the time,What you can do is go under the truck and manualy pull the cables rear of the truck this should release the brake.
As for the four wheel drive the E-brake has nothing to do with it. on the transmissions transfer case there should be a switch or a manual lever that a cable hooks to this is most likly your four wheel drive problem unless you have locking hubs where you have to pysicly get out and lock the hubs at the wheel then the locking hubs may be worn broken or bad.

1993 Dodge Dakota, front left brake locks up on slippery roadways, does not pull to either side while driving?

you have a sticking caliper on that side or the oppise side is not working. since you did not mention anything about the rear brakes my guess is the rear brakes are wore out or out of adjustment, to test jack up with all four wheels off the ground and have someone gently move the wheels around one at a time and see if thel lock up at te same time as you slowly push the brakes down, if one locks up sonner than the others you have a problem with that brake system.

Brakes lock on ice, snow, rain, and high temperatures

Sounds like your Anti lock brake valve is not functioning right. The bad thing is that it has to be serviced by a technician. When they lock up is there any lights on the dash that light up like something that says anti-lock?
