Try lock lubricant. Spray it sown around the shackle on both sides, and around the dial. Push the shackle into the lock body to unload the mechanism, then try to turn the dial again - if your hasp has the shackle under tension, it may drag the mechanism and keep it from unlatching.

    Edit: Spray the lock lubricant "down" around the shackle into the lock on both sides.

My brakes randomly lock up on my 2004 chevorlet impala

If your brakes were "locking up" as you describe, it would be interesting to see. Brakes rarely self-apply. Lockup may occur after you apply the brakes as they may stick and won't release, but to have them just apply while driving is almost impossible. What you are describing sounds more to me like a massive vacuum leak. What this will do is reduce intake vacuum and steal all the power from the engine, and the brake pedal will go stiff as a result of the power brake booster losing its vacuum assist. You need to find the source of the vacuum leak and correct it.

1986 5.0 brake problems...replaced brake booster twice and master cylinder there is no power to the brakes...the brakes are stiff while the care is off....but when the car is on the brake pedal...

Did you check and adjust the push rod that comes out of the booster, and in turn pushes the rod in the master cylinder??
If its too long, the piston in the master cylinder won't move back far enough to pull brake fluid in.
If it's too short, it won't contact the piston at all.

It doesn't move as much as you might think.
If instructions came with the new booster, they may address this, and how to adjust it.

1. Open trunk
2. Place latch in lock position
3. Pull inside trunk release to see what isn't moving
4. If trunk key won't turn, the key may be worn out and need to be replaced

I locked the keys into my 1998 chevy astro van. is there a electronic way to short circuit the locking mechanism to get it to open?

no, you need a wooden wedge and a stiff wire. stuff the wedge between the door and doorframe at the top of the window to get enough of a gap to manuver the wire to unlock the doors. be gentle with the wedge, the less you need to pry the door the better.

or you could call your local locksmith/wrecker :)
