That year would have rear drum brakes, they need to be adjusted, if you can do this yourself it can be a little tricky, but if you take it to a shop no more than $35 for a rear drum clean and adjust. That means they will take the drums off and clean off all the dust and some rust, then adjust the rear brakes so they wont lock up anymore, if it continues to do so they did it wrong, if it goes away something is wrong with adjusters themselves
Thank you Hopefully thats all it is, a nice clean & adjust

2002 buick century brakes will lock after it has been parked for 5 min or 5 hrs and will not move until I go from forward to reverse several time. Intermittent but frustrating.


While I don't have a specific solution to your complaint, I did find a site that lists many, many service bulletins related to braking problems on the 2002 Buick Century. Why not take a look to see if any of these complaints sound like yours.

My 2001 Buick Century's tail brake lights are not working. The far right one works but the rest dont. I just replaced all the bulbs and reset the fuses, and they still dont work. When I lock and unlock the...


Your brake light switch, which is located on the brake pedal, has malfunctioned. If you replace that your pedals will go back to working. When they go bad one or more brake lights will not work when the brake pedal is pressed but will work all other times. The reason is because the light doesn't "know" that the pedal is being pressed because it isn't getting the signal from the switch. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!
