Brakes on my 05 trailblazer locked up while driving and the vehicle won't move.

ALL brakes locked up, or just rear? Rear could mean differential is locked up...Sounds more likely while driving it, as cars now have a front or rear valve so all brakes are not lost at one time..

The rear brakes seized and went on fire!The yearof the jeep is 1999

Sounds to me like the brakes were not replaced on time and someone continued to drive the vehicle until they were metal on metal? The friction of the metal is very hot and can cause fire. As for the locking of the brakes, perhaps the pads were burned and caused the seize? If you did not continue to use the vehicle after the brakes were worn and began making noises to let you know that it was time for changing, then I would hire a mechanic to disassemble them and take pictures to document his findings before replacing everything.

1986 buick century back brakes lock up if you just tap the peddle in my drveway

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

Brake lock-up

I suspect that you have front disc and rear drum brakes.You did not say which of your brakes are locking up. I suggest that if your front brakes are locking {skid} that means your rear brakes are not engaging. If your rear brakes are locking {skid} then I suggest you have problems with park brake or brake fluid leaking onto the rear shoes.
More info would help me help you. I will check back soon.

99 Jeep GC brake lock.

You say they replaced basicly everything that involes the rear brakes.
Every step they took to find the problem could lead to the solution,BUT did they check the inboard brakes. The brake system on a jeep that has rear rotors have inboard shoes for the parking brake.
You could have a parking brake cable that is frozen (this will cause a drag on the inboard brakes. Do you use the parking brake? Maybe the parking brake shoes are adjusted too tight?
