Rear wheels are locked up and it will not roll. The Brake leaver is locked up will not adjust. it seems as though the brake in the rear end is locked up or the rear end is locked up.


could be that emergency is stuck on, sometimes pulling of the cables will loosen them up. If you are trying to adjust the brakes, are you sure you are backing them off and not just tightening them more? Sometimes a bad rubber hose can break down and maintain the pressure on the brake cylinders, locking them up. I would remove the wheels and back off the adjusters and free up the emergency to get the drums off. Once brake adjustment problems are eliminated to can work at figuring out if the rearend itself is broken/locked up.

The adjuster is all the way closed and the drum wont go on


If we are talking about the rear brake and it is a drum brake(some have rotors), the drum brake is also your Emergency brake.

The Emergency brake has a cable and it often is self-adjusting. What has probably happened in your car is that the adjuster has tightened up and the OFF position is too tight for the thickness of the new brake material.

The cable winds on a reel in the Emergency brake assembly for those units with self-adjusters. Simple lock-nuts manually adjust the cable on other units.

So what you want to do is unreel the self-adjuster by keeping your fingers clear and pushing a release tab on the Emergency brake cable reel. Or manually back off the manually adjusting lock nuts on the brake cable. You may have to work loose the rust in the pivot at the backing plate.

Once you get the pivot to fully swing into the drum, the adjuster will contract enough for the drum to fit.

Please comment on my info.

88 chevy C1500 dash brakelight flashing rear wheels lockup then release.


The brakelight fuse and the switch on the pedal is only for the brake lights. It should have no effect on the dash brake light. That light is to alert you that a problem exists in your braking system, not the brake lights. I think you will have to pull off the rear drums and investigate why they are locking up. Check for a leaking brake wheel cylinder that may have contaminated the brake shoes, causing them to grab and lock up. Are the shoes in good shape? Also, check the operation of the emergency brake. Maybe it is not releasing fully. The emergency brake can be adjusted on the cables somewhere underneath the truck, probably at the equalizer (where the cable for the emergency brake splits to both sides of the truck). The adjusting nut will have a lock nut tight against it to hold the adjustment. Loosen the lock nut, then turn the adjusting nut one way to loosen the cable, and the other way to tighten up the cable. You might want to loosen it up and see if that has any effect, and then tighten it once you have fixed the problem. The adjustment would be about right when the emergency brake handle or pedal locks up the rear brakes when it is depressed about halfway to nearly fully depressed.
Hope this helps you out, and good luck.

I replaced my rear brakes. Does the emergency brake automatically adjust itself?


Yes.....and no. Emergency brake should have been checked during brake pad replacement.
Most do adjust to new pads...ie: return to factory adjustment setting due to new pads .

The E brake lever should be applying braking to the wheels after three clicks are heard during application of the Emergency brake.

Lift rear of car and apply emergency brake to the third click. Now both rear wheels should drag equally but not be locked up.
.
If not, adjustment required.

However, late model cars need a scanner to pull back the pistons and install pads.

89 f150 4x4 right rear locked up


On older vehicles with drums brakes in the rear, the brake shoes on the inside are used for the emergency brake. However, the emergency brake only uses one pad per wheel instead of both, which is why the emergency brake does not work as well at keeping the vehicle from rolling backwards. You should check to see if the emergency brake is locked up. If that doesn't work, take the driveshaft off and try tow it forwards. If it rolls, then your transmission is not functioning properly.

Emergency brake LOCKED UP on my 97 ranger


The right emergency brake cable is probaly chafed through somewhere.Try wiggling the cable around and see if it backs off.More than likely you need to get the cable replaced.
