Why do my front brakes keep locking up?

My 2009 z71 is doing the same thing. 2 brake boosters and master cylinders but front brakes keep locking up intermittent. Usually after running in park for 5-10 min. Mechanics can’t figure it out. Brake lines have been flushed repeatedly. Problem never happens while at the mechanic. 31 people found this helpful.

How can I tell if my Silverado 1500 has front brakes?

You can check with a multimeter to ensure you have the right amount of space between the sensor and wheel bearing but I just put one spacer on the sensor, bolt it back to the hib and spin my hub and liaten and feel for scraping. If u dont then put your caliper back on and test your brakes. Rust and corosion messes with the spacing for some reason

What to do when your disc brakes lock up?

If disc, then you need to look at the flex hoses to see if they are breaking down internally creating little flapper valves that restrict the brake fluid from flowing back when brakes are released. Try opening the bleeder screw when the wheels are locked up again and see if releasing the fluid releases the brakes.

What does it mean when your brakes lock up?

The brakes locked up, and I went to the Master Cylinder and loosened the brake line that was closer to the front of the truck (which I believe is the rear brakes). I loosened it enough for fluid to come out, and then all of a sudden the wheels broke free and the truck “rocked” into park.

Why are the brakes soft on my 1997 GM Truck?

Bled the brakes the next day and they did not improve. Heard a loud hiss coming from the booster and I replaced it and the master cylinder. Bench bled the master before installing it. Bled the brakes again and the pedal has not improved. I’ve been told there could be air in the ABS but my ABS light has been on for a year.

What does it mean when your front brake is not working?

Brake Pull: Uneven braking means that you have one front brake on your Chevy that is not operating properly. Your brakes pull to the good side. This can be due to oil, grease or fluid on a pad, a caliper that is stuck, brake line blockage, or wheel bearings that are loose.
