Master cylinder maybe or the brake lines going to the back of the truck, but most likely the master cylinder, check to see if you see any brake fluid on the front of the brake booster or any paint peeling off the brake booster

Rear wheels lock up on my dodge dakota

What year Dakota? Drum Brakes?

Lock up when?

If you use the parking brake,then the cables
have to be replaced because of rust.

With proper brake maintenance once a year, there is no
reason to say they lock up while driving

97 dodge dakota leaking power steering fluid but unit was replaced. Is there a radiator or cooling system that could be damaged?

it could possibly be a PS hose thats leaking, if its blasting out, it would be the power side of the unit hose, if it just leaks out, it would be the return line, you can tell what kind of leak by the fluid leaking, a radiator or cooling system would be antifreeze ,, the PS would be an oil

1999 DODGE Dakota abs & brake light are on and brake pedal goes right to the floor but the vehicle does stop at slow speed

sounds as if there might be a brake fluid leak somewhere in the system.check the master cylinder to see if the brake fluid is low or almost empty,if the fluid is up then it could be a master cylinder that has an internal leak(meaning the fluid is leaking past the internal seals but not leaking out of the cylinder).it also can be a problem with the abs hydraulic control module should have the abs system checked for any codes in that system which may help find the problem quicker,if you don`t find any problem with the other suggestions

Soft (mushy) braking on my 2005 Dodge Dakota V6

soft and mushy brakes is a sign that there could be air in the brake system or your master cylinder has a bad O-ring in it.
first thing to check is to see if there is fluid in your brake fluid reservoir,, if the fluid level is low - then re-fill the reservoir and bleed the brake lines ( all the brake lines ). if the reservoir is full - then I would assume that the master cylinder is bad and needs to be replaced,, but there is also a chance that you have a leak somewhere in a line or at the distribution valve -- make sure you look for the leak.
if you are still having troubles - please feel free to write me back here and I will do my best to walk you thru the next steps needed.

Brake fluding leaking on rear passenger

Most brake fluid leaks, especially from vehicles of this age are caused from rusted through lines. Take a look under the car and look at the line on the axle, you will likely find a wet spot. If you can't locate the leak easily, fill the brake reservior and have someone pump the brakes to find the source. Another common source of leaks are wheel cylinders. If this is the case you will notice brake fluid on the bottom of the drum backing plate. You can remove the brake drums to confirm this.

I have a 1999m dodge dakota pu 6cyl and both front calipers donot retract after applied

hi, sometimes rust seizes the operation of calipers, and the caliper PISTONS seizes solid. rectification is to replace BOTH CALIPERS ALWAYS. because if the left caliper works, but, the right do'nt then it will throw your vehicle into trafic or vice versa. you will need to take off the brake fluid pipe,but, if you use a BRAKE PIPE CLAMP and do one side first before undoing the caliper. the bleeding of the brake system is minimal it do'nt leak out so much. gerry
