The first thing I'd recommend is to remove your rear brake drums and check to see if you have an axle seal leaking, rear deferential oil on the brake shoes will cause the brakes to lock up.

Are you sure it is all 4 wheels locking up? I have a 1998 Century and had the same problem, it is due to moisture getting on the rear brake shoes, this makes them "stick" to the drum cold and lock the wheels, the newer brake shoe friction material has been improved to avoid this so called "stickson" problem in moist cold weather.

Have you checked the proportioning valve,if it has one,
this regulates the pressure between the front and rear systems.
It will be a small steel item in the brake line system.

Back passenger rear wheel is locked


It sounds more like your rear end has a bad bearing or a bad pinion gear. If it has high miles it may be time for a rebuild. It could be brake related also, take off the back drum and see if anything is rattling around in there or broken. If your not hitting the brakes they shouldn't engage.

Rear brake lock up


If you have drum brakes on the rear and I am pretty sure you do, and you had to remove the drums you will need to adjust the rear brakes back to the point of almost touching the drum while jacked up and spinning the tire. Not to tight. The brakes are probably traveling so far to hit the drum that they lock up. This will be more noticeable when raining or damp weather. Hope this helps.

Brakes


if you have rear drum brakes, check the rear brakes to see if you have any fluid leaks as in brake fluid from the wheel cylinder. it sounds like that is what is happening. when rear drum brakes get oil soaked they tend to lock up when the brakes are applied

Rear wheel brakes lock up


It could be a couple of things..Either you have a fluid leak and its getting on the brake pads making them grab or it could be the abs system itself.. There is a speed sensor on the rear axle which also controls the abs.. That can be changed easily and isnt too expensive.. Kip
