My brakes are locking up.
Hello. Your brakes can lock up for many reasons. If the wrong brakes were used or if they are contaminated with oil or grease than this will occur. If neither of these are present then there may be a problem with the ABS system or the brake master cylinder. If the brakes lock up while driving and stay locked then the master cylinder is probably bad. A mechanic would typically go through and check the braking pressure to see where the failure is. If you plan on having this done, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic diagnose your brake system.
