On a 1997 its probably the cylinder that is locked up inside the drum, or some linkage is broken or stuck like springs or other fasteners i would take it apart and take a look do an inspection see if you can tell if anything is broken...

SOURCE: right rear wheel locking up

okay you had brake work done!!! "THINKING" that was the problem originally right rear wheel locking up! okay,,, so doing brakes has not solved your problem! I would maybe look into rear end bearing??? do you have any load road noise from rear and do you have rear end fluid in differential? question to you was the baking plate ""WET"" looked damp? or moister get at it!??? seal might have leaked all fluid out??? all the above would be good place to start! good luck I hope this info helps you out.Happy new year.

SOURCE: Rear brakes wont bleed. Sucks fluid in when brakes applied. Has ABS.

try this. open the two bleeder screw at the rear calipers. leave it open untill the fluid drips generously. close the bleeder. try the brakes. if it works bleed it the nornal way. note: make sure you dont run out of fluid in the master cylinder

SOURCE: 1996 dodge ram 3500, abs brakes are locking up

is it the front or rear locking up? you really have to have this truck loaded (load valve under bed) before the back brakes come on and i think these are the same as my 1999 2500 where the rear is only abs, and not on the front..dumb design i know, but thats how it is...determining if its rear abs only and which axle is locking up will help pin point the problem...i put 100000 miles on my dodge since i got it in 2001 and i put 8 sets of pads on the front and just changed the rear lining and thats only because the rear wheel cylinder was leaking causing the rear brakes to lock up..

SOURCE: my abs light stays on 1995 chevy G20 van

I'd be checking the sensor (ABS) at that wheel, (right front) and adjusting rear brakes to proper clearance, as well as inspect them for proper operation with wheels off.

Brakes abs light and pulsating brakes


Too many possibilities. You need to have a scanner that does abs systems used on it and see what the codes are. This could be anything from a faulty wheel speed sensor to a bad abs module.

ABS stays on a 2001 GMC Jimmy


This is a common issue, and is pretty easy to fix. There are ABS sensors on the wheels, and you have a bad one. Usually the wires become corroded, and are easy to spot. The unit is on the back side of the wheel assembly.

My abs & brake lights go on & off brake pedal seems soft brake fluid - ok, no leaks, has new brake lines, slamming on the brakes locks 'em up. no abs, right? 2000 gmc jimmy 4.3


Sounds like you might have air in the brake system. You will need to bleed the brakes to remove air. Start with the passenger back wheel. use a small hose and submerge the end in a glass bottle filled 1/3 full of brake fluid. The other end goes on the nipple of the brake bleeder. Have someone pump the brakes and then hold the pedal down then loosen the bleeder. then tighten the bleeder. you should see bubbles in the brake fluid. Keep repeating this procedure until you see no bubbles. You might have to put as much as 1 quart of brake fluid thru each wheel to remove air. Then you do the driver side rear followed bypassenger side front and finally driver side front

I have re/re the rear brake cylinders,shoes,drums,front rotors,pads,and callipers on my 2000 gmc safari van.i have bled all the brakes. but the drivers front has no pressure or fluid.the other three brakes...


make sure you are bleeding them by doing them as an abs system,do the right rear then the left front,then the left rear then the right front,the opposite wheels are how the system brakes.

I have a 1997 gmc jimmy. the abs unit locks up between 7mph and 5mph and the brakes stop working.


There was a recall on the ABS system on your truck. The problem was the ABS sensor on the front wheels were getting dirty and corroded causing a faults signal to the ABS module. The fix was to inspect the ABS sensor and clean them with brake parts cleaner and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring on the hub. The ABS sensor and speed ring is on the inside of the front wheel hub, spry brake parts cleaner and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring with paper folded 5 times. I feeler gauge will work but put a paper between the sensor and gauge cause the sensor is magnetic and the gauge will stick. Look for damages to the lead wire to the abs, but i think that's all fine since you did not mentioned any abs light on. You may be even lucky with just a good spray of the brake parts cleaner. Good luck and keep me posted.

Our 1997 GMC Sierra locks rear wheels suddenly


More likely to be a rear end issue. If the brakes have been checked I would have your rear end checked. Could turn into a very dangerous situation.

Brake pedal vibrates while braking and doesent stop right away


There's speed sensors at each wheel. You may have got some contamination in front of one of them... sounds like the abs is trying to compensate for un equal speed at each wheel... and something may be blocking a proper read at one of the wheels...

Front brake drag


Does it have abs breaks? I have heard of problems with the older abs systems.
