Rear brakes stay engaged all the time .

Disassemble the rear brake and check the caliper and mechanics of the assembly. Something is sticking and in most cases it is the caliper but could be related to the ABS control module or splitter that is connected to the Master cylinder that the 4 brake lines connect to under the hood. Another possibility is the Emergency brake sticking.

I just replaced the rear brake pads on my 03 Silverado 1500. at first it drove fine, but Ive noticed lately that the rear (disk) brakes are dragging and causing excessive heat. There is a noticable shimmy...

Your calipers are sticking and causing your brakes to drag.Did you clean and lube the caliper slides before you reinstalled them and did you have the rotors turned?I have had this happen to me after doing a rear brake job.One or both of the calipers would stick and I had to replace them.Which means you will have to bleed the rear brakes.(Rear only)Hope this helps and let me know if you have anymore questions.Good luck.

Rear left wheel locks and skids...drum brakes...

You could have a parking brake cable sticking, or just your rear brake is over adjusted. Rear brakes can be adjusted in, and after the rear drum is removed, the parking brake cable should be checked to see if it moves in and out. Replace if needed!

Rear brakes on my 1999 sunfire stick and don't release after stopping. What is the problem???

Check your rear calipers (actuator calipers - the parking brake side will stick and will cause them not to release!)
