Check the caliper and see if it is sticking and not returning after being applied to brake pad. If the brake pad is showing excessive wear it is the caliper sticking open.

I have a chevy 2500 hd when i turn turn the rear wheels skip and bark

Chances are the locking rear differential is staying locked up and causing the tires to chirp/bark.You can try to fix this by changing the rear axle grease and then driving i circles both left and right about 20 times.If it starts to get better then try it for awhile.If not the rear locking DIFFERENTIAL MAY NEED TO BE REBUILT.Some other possible things to check before you go
and teardown the rear axle are-different tire sizes in the rear,the vehicle is in 4wd.

How do i adjust the rear parking brake on a 2004 chevy silverado 2500 hd 4x4

on the 04 chevy silverado theirs cable equilizers that stable your cables of your parking brakes check to see if those arent loose or damaged in anyway if so replace if not remove the rear wheels and use a brake spoon to spin the adjuster nut on the o4 chevy their is not slots in the sides of the brake drum or the dust shield so it is a hastle trying to find if your on the adjuster or not but once you tinker with it for a while you will get the hang of it

Chevrolet 2500 crewcab - rear door auto lock shut off

try punching the remote lock button twice. experience with 4 door s-blazers shows that it has to be done twice to lock all 4 doors. also look for "child safety" switched for the rear doors that may be disabling remote locking for the rears.

Re. 2004 2500 Ram

you think your caliper just froze up? those arnt very expensive usually, i would just take off the caliper and see how hard it is to press in i was looking at the wiring diagram for your vehical there is a front left front right and a rear wheel speed sensor. it looks like there is no way the abs could lock up one rear, and besides the abs is to stop the wheels from locking up not to actually lock them up, anyways im almost positive its either someone left your brake on and didnt notice which wouldnot explain only one wheel locking up, your brake cable is unajusted on that side which would make it do this all the time, or that your caliper was just freezing up on that side which is probably what it was, you should be able to notice the drag, i would replace caliper and call it a day. make sure your caliper slides are not locked up also, that would cause only one side of your pad to contact that roter and overheat it quicker, so these last two options are the only plausible solutions i can come up with, if you take that caliper off, try to move the slides that the piston have that the bolts go through to the caliper mounts. make sure those are free floating first, then i would think of replacing the caliper if it goes in unsmoothly. good luck brother any other problems or need any other help give me a shout, take care
