Could be that the callipers are jamming or the wheel is running tight. Check for wheel spin with the front wheels off the ground, they should spin with minimum effort. Could also be something wrong with the master cylinder. It may not be releasing properly and slowly building pressure to lock the brakes. After sitting for a while, it returns to normal position and releases the brakes. Mt Ford had a dud wheel bearing which would intermittently start to seize. When this happened, the anti lock braking system thought that the wheel was about to lock and would throw the brakes on and off without warning... Check your wheel bearings too.

    Yes,thank u,Steve F..i had breaks pads all away around,rotors, calibers,drums ....without warning they lock up still,while driving ,after i park for 15min, they release,like if they never lock up....it might happen twice in one month ..thanking its the master cylinder..?

    Hi Terry, not sure if the Chev has the same type of master cylinder pushrod,as the Ford, Ive had mine screw itself in which slowly applies pressure to the brakes (The front ones first) This starts to tighten up the front wheels which causes the anti lock brake system to operate. It could be your problem as well.

Rolls in park


The parking brake can be bad or stuck. There is not much to them to begin with. For the transmission, there are several potential problems.

You may just need an adjustment, as the Park is on one extreme end of the shift from the rest. It may not quite be locking.

Inside the trans there is a lever called a pawl. Can't say why it is called that but it is suppose to wedge between gears notches inside the trans. This is suppose to lock the shaft. If the pawl lever is broke, it has no end to jam in its position. The broken part would be loose inside the trans.

I see that you were on a driveway. It could do it anywhere. Remember Driver training to hook front wheels toward downgrade hills and for the back of the front wheels to hook the curb on upgrades when parallel parking.

Even so, the Parking brakes are not that good to depend on when the trans does not lock in place. Take it somewhere to check trans linkage.

1999 Audi A6 gear shift not moving, even with break applied


The lock shift solenoid that works withe break pedal has gone bad... it's located next to or In front of the shifter.. on some vehicles. You have a key slot that you can use another key or small screw driver in it to unlock the shifter. Just replace that and it should be fine..
