Check brake fluid level if you haven't already. Also, there is a silicon based break lubricant that you can buy that should be applied to the slide on the caliper. If there is corrosion on the slide it will cause the break to stick. Full out lock up indicates a serious problem with the caliper, especially if only the front tire locks up, consider rebuilding the caliper (if thats the probem) or replacing it. if you replace it, bring in your old one and the parts store should give you a "core charge" credit for the old one...lowers the cost of the new one since you don't have to pay for another core charge

hope this helps and gives you a starting point on what to look for.

oh, also if it lock up only when you push on the break pedal it could be you proportioning valve, malfunctioning..

Ford ranger back brakes locked up? what can cause this?

If NOT PARK BRAKE & / or Cables , THE BRAKE HOSE (RUBBER) from body to Axel can Fail on the INSIDE in a Way that it HOLDS Brake Fluid IN the Rear Axel (LINES) "STEAL" It sounds Strange But in My 30 years I have seen this MOSTLY on Front (Rubber) Hoses But also A Number of times, if you Crack it Loose on the AXEL side (Just After Semi HARD APPLYING of BRAKE) and it Drains Fluid FAST this is your Problem. Only OTHER Item Involved to HOLD BOTH WHEELS is> As I Said the PARK BRAKE MECHANISM & / OR CABLES.
