Q: All tires are locked car won't move at all

asked by on

Car goes into gear but doesn't move at all like I really have to floor the gas to barely move forward or backwards

My car has 85300 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Your parking brakes may have seized. Try to jack up a back wheel and see if it can be turned to see if the brakes seized? If it did then you will need to have the parking brake cable and calipers checked to see what seized.
