If your caliper is old it could have rust or dirt around it jamming it up not letting the piston go back in. Same on rear brakes with wheel cylinders, but the have forks that get jammed.

SOURCE: I have a 1992 Chevy 1500 4x4 the right rear wheel

frozen or engaged parking brake cable or possible bad brake hose but that would cause both to lock is the other wheel cylinder leaking? that would releave pressure from the wheel . a fluid leak (axle seal or cylinder) can cause the locking feeling because it slips then catches when the fluid wears off hope this helps

Would the abs fuse have anything to do with the breaks locking up when brake pedal is pressed but then releasing


Usually when ABS system has a fault, it is by-passed by default and the braking system will still function. The driver will only notice the difference when sudden braking. Locking up may be due to worn brake pads or brake disc. Both can cause the slave cylinders in the caliper unit to over extend and may make it difficult to retract and release the brake.

2000 425 Expedition hydraulic brakes freeze up what causes this and how do we fix it


It could be a couple of things. The question is is hydraulic pressure being Mai tainted on that brake and it sounds do like it might be. That would indicate the brake system is not releasing pressure when the pedal is released. This could be from the master cylinder or proportioning valve. If the hydraulic system is releasing but the brake remains engaged then it is a mechanical issue and I would replace the caliper.

95 All wheel drive Blazer It's hard steer , re-end locking. nd locking up and alost seems like the br. What would cause all this?


Start with the rear. Most likely a brake problem. 2 things to look at. First the emergency brake cable. Make sure the cable is kind of loose. If not it is locked/rusted and applying the brake. Gets worse as you drive. Cut them close to the brake or replace them. Next is the rear brake hose/s. To check this, if the brakes are tight, release one of the brake bleeder valves. If it releases the brakes, replace the hose. Hard steering could be the power steering pump or gear box, or bad ball joints. This you'll have to look at the steering linkage. Ball joints, pitman arm, idler arm. Any of these look really rusty at the connection. Could be a problem. Look at the steering shaft also. There is a u joint that rusts up and will cause hard spots when turning. Gear boxs usually get sloppy. Power steering pumps start to whine when going bad.

I have 09 buick lacrosse and my brakes lockes up what could cause this


Could be caliper/s or brake hose/s. Easiest way to tell is release the brake hose from the caliper. If it releases, the hose is clogged/collapsed. If it doesn't it's the caliper.

What cause the brakes to lockup


Bad caliper or trash in the line. I would think that it would be the caliper or a bad brake cylinder. This is the hydraulic cylinder on a disc brake that wont release or it would be the Brake cylinder on drum brakes (usually the rear brakes on newer cars).

Front brake locked up


sound like you have a brake caliper that has went defective.need to replace this item and should take care of the problem.because when you applied pressure to the brakes the brake caliper started to close so the brakes could tighten against the brake rotor to slow vehicle down and some times these calipers will stick down holding pressure on the wheel disc and cause the wheel to still have the brakes holding down the brake shoes against it not letting pressure to release from rotor and this is what caused it to stay locked up its not releasing to allow to allow wheel to spin free.best bet is to replace the brake caliper.you can pick one up at parts place or local junk yard and are not highly expensive but I would go with new one if possible. to insure this does not happen again this is very dangerous could cause you to have a accident so I would get fixed before driving again.safety first .hope this helps you out so I would replace the brake caliper and also put a new set of brake shoes on it.its not hard to put on easily fixed. thanks 10 zacks

Van will not back up or drive forward. Seems like the back end is locked up. Van started and shifted into gear, but would not move.


If you can feel the thump of the engine when you select gear I would say the trans is working, most likely I would say that your emergency brakes are locked, your rear shoes are binding with the drum. 2 causes, a frayed cable may not be allowing you to release the the brakes, or the springs are soft in the rear brake area and not releasing. Jack up the rear put in neutral, emergency lever off, see if wheel can turn by hand, if not, remove wheel hit brake drum with rubber mallet to see if this releases the shoes off the drum. Inspect emergency brake cable first to see that there is little tension holding it. let me know how you go. cheers.

ANTI LOCK BRAKES WORK SOME TIMES AND MESS UP OTHER


ABS has a sensor which is basically like a metal blade which sticks into the tire attachment into grooves.As the tire turns,the blade senses the RPM.When you brake suddenly,the sensor tells the computer when your tire is about to skid and releases brake pressure.It applies and releases brake pressure very quickly so as not to cause a skid.One of these may be going bad.A computer check can tell you quickly,but you probably know about computer application pricing.If you want to buy one and switch tires every couple days you could probably find out,but it would be very tedious.Good luck.

The rear driver side wheel is locked


One of two things can cause this problem. The brakes or the bearings. i would first check the brakes. It may be the caliper is locked or the brake line has collapsed causing an inability to release. A somewhat easy fix. The bearing are also fairly easy to fix.
