Q: Brakes totally froze up with a stalled motor

asked by on

I thought the engine stalled in my 2013 Ford Edge the other day, but it turns out the rear brakes were just totally seized up on the rotors. I have to replace the calibers but hopefully the warranty will cover it, vehicle only has 19,000 miles on it. Is this an issue with the whole brake system? Will this happen again?
