If you have Disc Breaks the calipers could be freezing up on you. in this case you need to replace the calipers

    they are disk. i'm active military and it sat without being driven for almost 4 months until i let my brother use it then the bakes locked. they free up and function normal after sitting for a while or so i'm told i'm away so i cant actually get hands on with it and solve the problem

    Thanks for the info If they are still locked up when you return pull the wheel and try to seperate the disc from the caliper by prying it with a large screw driver to free them up Hope this helps and God speed

I have 09 buick lacrosse and my brakes lockes up what could cause this


Could be caliper/s or brake hose/s. Easiest way to tell is release the brake hose from the caliper. If it releases, the hose is clogged/collapsed. If it doesn't it's the caliper.

I have a 1992 Chevy 1500 4x4 the right rear wheel has locked up. I took the brake drum off and it looked like the brake shoes are not releaseing. What would cause that?


frozen or engaged parking brake cable or possible bad brake hose but that would cause both to lock is the other wheel cylinder leaking? that would releave pressure from the wheel . a fluid leak (axle seal or cylinder) can cause the locking feeling because it slips then catches when the fluid wears off hope this helps
