you have pads on the back then the calliper is seized.If you have drums fitted the the shoes are locked to the drum.Cylinder seized or linnings come away from shoes causing brake lock up.Hope that was help full good luck.

Either the brake has locked up for some reason or the wheel bearing has gone out. It might be the emergency brake locked up. Either way, it will require so investigation by a mechanic. Is your emergency brake completely released inside the car.

How do I know whether 4x4 is working?

that is part time 4wd
and i bet has manual locks on both front axle ends.
how'd i know that.???? grin
first off PT 4wd is for ICE or offroad
SO if NO ICE roads handly (i cant see you drive)
then go off road, or gravel road, or not pavement.
then shift to 4wd.
the rear will have power, for sure.
so that means how to test the front end
i do so on jack stands
put the car up on left side
engine off.
lock the front left lock and right.
now turn the left tire by hand,, bingo you cant.

if you can and the axle behind it does not spin that means the left lock is bad.
if the left axle does turns and so does the right axle , that means th right lock is bad.
3 tire on ground rules. part time.
the front drive shaft will not turn, if it does the transfer case is not in 4H or 4L. if the transfer case is working the rear drive shaft can not turn, in this test. (cuz both tires are on the ground)
see manual locking hubs test here and failure modes.

Why doesn't my 4x4 work

Do you have mechanical-shift four wheel drive,or electronic-shift, 4WD system ? Any lights lit on the dash ?
The electronic-shift, 4WD system consists of the following components:
  • Transfer case (For transfer case repair procedures, refer to Section 308-07B ).
  • 4WD control module (For 4WD control module installation, refer to 4WD control module in this section.)
  • Mode select switch (MSS)
  • Gearmotor encoder assembly
  • Automatic locking hubs (hub locks)
  • Pulse vacuum hub lock (PVH) solenoid and vacuum lines
  • The mechanical-shift four wheel drive (4WD) system consists of the following components:
  • Transfer case (For transfer case repair procedures, refer to Section 308-07B ).
  • Transfer case shift lever
  • Manual locking hubs
  • 4x4 indicators
  • Shift linkage (hub locks)

When I put my gear into Reverse, Netrual and Drive the gear is getting stiff to move. Why is this happening?

If you mean the shifter is getting hard to move, its probably the shift linkage sticking, try a couple squirts of pblaster or other penetrating oil. If the motion of the vehicle is getting hard to drive in reverse and drive the torque converter may be the issue.

Sometimes when it is cold, I put my 2001 Tundra in drive and it dont want to move, like the brakes are locked. When I put it in reverse then bump into drive everything is fine

Lift the rear tire off the ground and see if the tire rotates? if it does then your brakes are fine. Now as far as the vehicle not wanting to move right away could be due to low tranny fluid level or internal leak down.

It's very hard to shift(lever?) my 96 prizm out of park.

the lever is hard to move foot on brake, right>?
on hill?
there are 2 things that prevent the lever from moving out of park
1: park lockout feature
2: parking pawl in trans jammed by persons parking on a hill incorrectly, (not setting hand brake first) this jams the internal Pawl, lock.
if the bypass lever below works, then its not the transmission locking. its the feature 1 doing that.

are you parked on hill ? or on the flat
are your tires/wheels jammed against a curb?
if on the flat and tires not against some object.
then the car is free to roll, and that means the parking pawl
is not jammed, (normal not parked correctly , hand brake first on, last off) per opr. manual.

called park lock out.
this is a feature that prevents car moving , starting the engine up.
the first thing that must work are rear brake lights.
you step on the brake, the lamps glow and the park solenoid unlocks freeing up the shift lever.
the corolla is its, in geo snake skins.

here is the circuit, after fixya badly shrinks it.
login to Mitchells see it your self.

did you scan the PCM first to see if the shift'er inputs are not showing DTC errors. ?
the logic has 3 input , progressives.
brake on, and the 2 shift'er switches most read correctly before
the shift solenoid , unlocks, left red arrow below.
X is the ECU. the ECU is the Logic, rule maker here.
if on flat ground we can find true cause
if you HAVE A voltmeter,
or replace the brake fuse. if blown.
the brake lamps on rear of car must not fail.
bad fuse brakes its its cracked, or loose. or rusty
bad brake switch. same deal park locking device
will not disable any time brake lamps fail.
i have the drawing if you need it.
a 96 Toy corolla is same car. same wiring
ask... have it all.

Car will not shift into gear

Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.
