Q: Back wheels locked up

asked by on

The back wheels are locked up and won't move.

Hi there. When back wheels lock up an issue with the brakes arises. This issue is usually your rear brakes not being adjusted correctly. Also, this can be caused by a jammed parking brake. i would suggest having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, further diagnose why your wheels are locking up.
