It could be that the park shoes fell off the steel backers inside the rear drum/rotors. That is only if you have rear disc brakes. They use rear park shoes inside the rear rotors. When they fall off they seem to lock the wheels when backing up. Hope this will help you a little. Either way you will have to check the rear brakes. If it is drum brakes, it still could be the shoes came off. Good luck .. Cobra.. :-)

2006 ford explorer. While driving and abs code, a picture of a wrench and the truck skidding picture came up. What do codes mean besides taking it in immediately!!!!? How much will this cost to repair or...

Sounds like your car is reporting a fault with the anti lock braking system. Sometimes this can be caused by a faulty sensor. Whilst the car still has brakes it could be that their anti -lock function is no longer working and this would compromise your brakes at the limit in an accident situation. To test, and in the process perhaps allow the sensor to reset, find a quiet stretch of road free of other road users, especially users behind you. Do an emergency stop from about 40mph by just stamping on the brakes as hard as you can. If the ABS is still working you will feel back through the foot pedal a shuddering sensation. If there is no shuddering and the wheels lock out and car skids to a stop then your abs unit and braking system need a look at. Check your brake fluid level and check your ABS sensors and cables for integrity. If everything looks OK but the fault still remains then take it to the shop for a complete diagnostic study.

1991 ford ranger 2wd 2.9, 4 cyl, manual trans(mazda trans) transmission jumps out of reverse when trying to back up, doesn't feel like it is going completely into reverse.

check the shift lever and make sure it goes all the way into reverse. remember it is all the way on the right and all the way back.

you may have to take the rotors back off completely and look for the baby brake shoes behind the rotors because sometimes they will hang up and give you some of the problems you are having
