My daughters 2007 Odyssey loses power in rain. It started when she went through a deep puddle coming from work at night. Now whenever there is rain it has little power.


Possible the trip throught the deep puddle soaked the alternatior when water got above the splash guard mounted on the under carrage suggest you check all of the electrical wiring amd relays to see if any are wet or are now exposed to the weather. Good luck. Fixes for deep puddle adventures can be difficult to find and fix.

Brakes on my 05 trailblazer locked up while driving and the vehicle won't move.


ALL brakes locked up, or just rear? Rear could mean differential is locked up...Sounds more likely while driving it, as cars now have a front or rear valve so all brakes are not lost at one time..

Do both wheels lock or just one. If you have a bositive rearend this may be hard to tell. With that age of truck you may have loose rubber in the flexable hoses that connect the pistons to the tubing at the wheels.. this aged flexable hose or hoses my be causing your problem. Just a suggestion. I have had this hapen on older vehicles

Passenger rear wheel locked up, 2004 Chevy Aveo LS, person said parking brake was stuck.. coiuld it have frozen that way?


This also happened to my 2004 Chevy Aveo. The drivers side rear wheel locked up when it first got extremely cold in December 2009. I had to change the rear wheel cylinder because it broke. They also found the rear wheel bearing also had to be changed. GM charges $180 for 1 rear wheel bearing. To make matters worse I had to order the whole backing plate which came with the rear wheel cylinder and a whole bunch of hardware.
If you look in the GM manual it says that you should flush and change your brake fluid every 24 months. My mechanic told me that moisture normal wrecks the brake cylinder. I'm not sure what happened to the wheel bearing but from now on I'll make sure to flush my brake fluid every 24 months.
