Seems like front brake engaged

The bike has been sitting for about 6 years. It seems like the front brakes have engaged. When you try to move the bike the front wheel does not turn like the brake is binding. Could the brakes have enhgaged during this time and how do you fix that problem?

Is yr bike fitted with disc brakes to the front?
If yes thn you will have to overhaul the brake calipers, it seems the pistons have jammed in there probabely due to rust on it at the pitted areas.
Better still is to overhaul the brake mastercylinder too.
Good luck

Blinking yellow wrench light on pride jazzy 614 HD


Your version has a Dynamic Controls model controller and joystick.
Unplug the charger and engage the motor/brake lever so the chair is no longer in free-wheel mode (con't push by hand)
Turn the chair off, wait 5 seconds, turn the chair back.
If chair still does not run and your wrench is flashing you have a problem. Count the wrench flashes - the flash count indicates the error detected. 3, 4, 5, and 6 flashes indicate and error with the motors.
3=Left motor fault
4=Right motor fault
5=Left brake fault (may not be engaged)
6=Right brake fault (may not be engaged)
Any other fault code usually means the electronics or wiring is bad and not worth fixing.

2004 cavalier wont move


The rear brakes are in fact engaged.
The parking brake handle may be released, but the rear wheel brakes are on.
Jack up one side and see if you can turn the wheel, then check the other side.

Son's can pedal 12" bike


Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.

Avid Juicy 7 disc brakes:The front wheel was removed and the brake lever squeezed while the wheel was off. The front wheel goes on, but does not spin freely. It turns easily, but not freely like it...


It sounds like you have a piston that is not fully returned and is sticking.

Get a big flat bladed screw driver, take the wheel out and very carefully insert the screw driver into where the disc would sit and use the screw driver to try and push each brake pad back in without damaging your brake pads.

If this works go to a local bike shop and ask them for a avid brake insert for transporting your bike so this does not happen in future! :)

Emergency brake sticking.....i think. Mazda B4000 pickup


Are you sure it is the emergency brakes?Or is it a caliper stuck,because it is bad,or the caliper brake hose is stopped up?Jack the wheels up,one at a time,and try to see if they will turn by hand.This will tell you if it is front,or rear.If it is the emergency brake,then the cable from the front,to the bake,is most likely the problem,it is rusted ,and frayed,and stuck,you will have to disconnect it at the rear,from the brakes.If this helps,let us know,If it is the calipers,in the front,the wheels will not turn by hand.Brake loose the caliper bleed screw,and if the caliper turns the wheel loose,then the brake hose is bad,if it does not ,then the caliper is bad on that wheel.

I have just bought an 03 Kawasaki 500 ER5 it has a noise from thn


Best would be to examine tht noise, put your bike on the center stand and get an assistant to sit on it so tht the front wheel is thn free to rotate.
Rotate the wheel and try to locate the noise...not bad if you start at the brake pads!
Hope this helps!

1979 ford f-250 four wheel drive won't engage


I take it the transfer case shifter feels okay (shifts through all four gear positions), so try jack up one side of front end, rotate wheel while looking in knuckle to see if drive axle turns, if it does, then hubs engaged. Now if someone holds the front d shaft, and wheel won't turn, then both hubs are engaged. Next put t case in 4xhi or 4xlow, if you cant turn the wheel, then the t case is engaged, and all is normal. If wheel still turns at this point, then the t case is not engaged for some reason, but post again if it does. Hope this helps.
