Rust, pure and simple...next time you park up for an extended period, block the wheels and release the parking brake.
What you could have done is put it in reverse then drive to rock the car back and forwards to release them,yes, it is that easy.......

Can I tow a 1996 Grand Caravan on a tow dolly and do the wheels lock as sugested by the tow dolly co.?


The rear wheels on this car are free rolling. With the front wheels up on the tow dolly and secured with the straps provided you should have no problems. Follow the tow dolly instructions such as release the emergency brake, place selector in neutral, and don't drive over 45 mph. You will get to where your going safely. GOOD LUCK.

Can I tow my 2002 grand caravan es on all 4 tires?


The answer is yes and no, but more no than yes. How far do you need to tow the vehicle? It is not recommended that any vehicle with automatic transmission be towed more than a few miles. With an auto transmission, towing without the engine running will not allow fluid to circulate throughout transmission, causing major damage to the gears in the transmission. If possible, use a tow dolly instead of towing on all four wheels.

CAN I TOW MY 2001 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN BEHIND MY MOTOR HOME


typically, it is not a good idea. the transmission pump only runs if the engine is turning. towing it would mean that some of the transmission gear train is spinning, but without proper lubrication. This will burn up the transmission over time. aftermarket kits are available for some models to resolve this issue, but i'm not too familiar with them.
