SOURCE: ABS BRakes

Check the brake light switch at the pedal. However an overheated/melted bulb base means arcing to me. So, BOTH sockets are probably slightly corroded & rusted. You fix that by scraping the terminals inside the socket with a pocket knife or screwdriver. Clean with alcohol or contact cleaner. If the new bulb isn't tight, and can be moved back and forth by hand, bend the contacts inward slightly, but don't snap them, they are spring steel. I was wondering when somebody would ask this question. I fix them at least to once a month - not the same car, but all GM's, and when fixed, they're good. Use logic if centre safety/brake light works.

The remote start sounds normal. There are many different types and they are quirky.

You should scan for codes with an OBD II scanner. If the problem was in the brake light connections or is fixed at the pedal, erase codes. It could be, by coincidence, and in no relation whatsoever to this problem, that a front wheel bearing sensor has gone - they do that, and require a new hub assembly.

SOURCE: 96 Cavalier passenger rear brake lock up when wet or cold

Bad PROPORTION VALVE ... the back brakes should only be doing 30% of the stopping with a bad proportion valve it will send more pressure to the back during braking and cause it to lock up. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: REAR BRAKE DRUM WON,T COME OFF

Make sure the wheel turns and adjuster backed off . If you can see a Countersunk screw in the face of the hub remove it.  If hitting it fails , usually you can see two small 8,10 or 12 mm holes in the face of the hub . Find the correct bolts and screw them into the the hub , it should force the the drum to pop off . What car is it , and does it have tapered wheel bearings on the outside of the drum?

2010 chevy Equinox LT Left rear wheel is locked. Could the parking brake be stuck on?


It could be a parking brake issue but it could also be a failed wheel bearing. If you get that wheel off the ground, does it flop around? If so, you need at least a bearing. It may have damaged the knuckle as well. It should have made a distinct roaring or humming sound as it was failing.

2000 toyota 4runner rear brake locked up, will go back, then neutral will roll little bit, then stuck, now in driveway, can not go anyway, please help!


You need to remove the rear wheels and the rotor/drums. You will find your problem in the parking brake shoes. You will need to replace these.

E-brake is locking up tires


if rear e-brake locks up then get under car and pull on cable to rear wheels, this should un lock brakes, if the cable is not in a bad state and rusted. if to bad replace rear cables. if it comes loose then oil the cable good at the rear wheels. this may take care of problem.but you may have to take rear tire off to check on the condition of rear brakes also.

1)check that the park brakes are not seized on.
2)check the driveshaft where it connects on the differential.
broken driveshafts and universal joints are common on those.

Have you used the e-brake? If so try to rotate the e-brake around they sometimes get crroded insie the housing and stay applied. You can als try to hit the back of the drum with a hammer and it may free up.

After sitting in driveway, back wheels have completely locked up.


Chock the front tires, loosen up the lug nutes on the rear tires, jack the rear end up, uncap the adjuster dust caps on the back of the rear drums, either use a brake spoon or straight blade screwdriver and turn the star adjuster while spinning the wheel until you have no resistance. If this does not work remove the rear tires and hit the sides of the drums with a small sledge hammer or hammer to loosen & break up the rust, When you get movement on the drum, hit it betweeen the studs. Be patient, this may take some time.

Right rear wheel has rubbing and grinding noises, as on cast iron


My advise is to adjust the rear brakes. The drum should not move in a side to side fashion. adjusting the brakes will also more than likely take care of that anti lock brake light also. adjust the brakes up to where the rear wheel will spin but you should be able to hear the brake show dragging slightly on the drum.

I have a 2006 saturn ion, my daughter has it at college in pennsy, she parked it on a driveway last night before it snowed and she engaged the emerg brake since it was a sloped driveway, today she went to...


Have her try putting it into drive, attempt to go foreward, plant her foot firmly on the brake, put it back into neutral, then try to release hand brake. Other than that, the only thing she can do is to try and warm up brake cables (shielded part near the backing plates) with a hair dryer.(in park, so it dosen't roll over her) This generally happens when water gets into cable shield and freezes Once free, spray some wd40 or other solvent into cable opening and on cables themselves.
