Check the master cylinder for oil. If oil got into the system then all the rubber parts have expanded and caused this condition. The other cause is that something is blocking the compensation vent hole inside the master cylinder. This hole allows for heated brake fluid to expand.

    P.S. Check that the brake fluid is not full to the top.

I have a 96 oldsmoblie cirea it will shift but not engauge and front wheels are locked in place


unlock your front brakes first. if it's front wheel drive, with locked front brakes, it would shift but wont run or you burn your transmission clutch. if it is not front wheel drive, if transmission shifts, rear wheels should turn or spin.

Why are the wheels locked on Jeep ? Won't even roll in Neutral!


so you did get the key to move enough and brakes on to move the shifter to neutral.
are you an the arctic circle, (i have a buddy there,) pop 100.
hand brake off,
park dis-engaged, neutral
if it dont move the brakes are locked
or one axle bearing is seized.
so jack up each wheel 1 by 1, and see if it turns
on flat ground, and other wheels chocked so car can not roll.
i bet all 4 can spin,
and you just can push this heavy pig. i can barely do my wrangler.
you tried to hand push a car?
lets work no starts

does it crank over in park/?
does the engine crank fast , while in the start position?
my guess is the park lock out is fooling you.
most cars the park lock up is complex now.
its really in park not neutral.
and the reason , blown fuse. my guess.
tell all that works key, on in details
head lights, not just my lights work say HEAD
they draw like 10 amps of current, about 100x more that other lights.

even better
does engines start with jumper cables, jumped from a running car.
donor car.
can AAA start car?
if yes, post that first. all else is effect not cause.

My front brakes keep locking up cant figure out why its on a 1997 ford escort


So you are driving down the road and the wheels just lock up? Or, is it locking up after you use the brakes and it stays locked up after you let off the pedal?

Tire locked up and brake fluid leaking


It's more than likely one of two things.Either the brake caliper pistons seized and didn't let the brakes release, or you have a wheel bearing seizing up. just check it out ! good-day !

When I'm in 4 wd the front wheels feel like the brakes are being applied when I make a sharp turn. No problems when driving straight or in 2 wd.


It sounds like you are driving in 4wd drive on dry pavement. The front drive axles do not work like the rear differential. When you turn, the outside front wheel must travel farther than the inside wheel, therefore they are traveling through the turn at different speeds. If you are on dry pavement, this causes the gears to bind. You don't notice this on slick surfaces because the outside wheel will slip instead of bind up the gears. You should not use 4wd on dry pavement. That's the advantage of push button, or shift on the fly, 4wd. You can shift back to 2wd when you encounter dry pavement. All wheel drive vehicles don't have this problem because they have a limited slip front differential as opposed to a locking differential on 4wd. Hope I didn;t confuse you too much.

Rear brakes lockup when you touch the pedal


there is a brake regulator on modern systems which controls the power between the front and the back breaks this maybe defective

when a car breaks most of the breaking force is placed on the front breaks as that is where most of the energy is heading so the car sinks down. if the same amount of breaking force is placed on the back wheels as they rise they have less friction as the weight is forward so they will lock up.
the device is designed to maintain more force to the front, if it fails the system will apply even force to all wheels.

recommend cosulting a certifed garage or local dealership about this problem.
Warning; continual driving with defctive breaks is illegal and may result in injury or loss.

Both back wheels locked while driving, didn't touch the brakes, cant even push it


was this sitting for a while previous to this problem? the calipers can become rusty over time when sitting, and can easily lock up the first time you press the brakes after moving it.

Hearing noises from the driver side front and rear wheels


Jack up that side of the car and turn the wheels by hand to narrow down where the noise is comming from. You may have binding of brakes, if you are driving slow down the road and let the steering wheel go does the car pull to one side ? does it get worse if you touch the brake ? If it does, check the front.
